Inspiring India - The Exhibition, Cox & Kings Bloggers Challenge

So last week was the Cox & Kings 'Inspiring India' exhibition held at the Royal Geographical Society in London. Unfortunately I wasn't able to actually attend the event myself, but I really enjoyed seeing the pictures on twitter on the night itself and reading the other bloggers blogposts about it. 

For my final piece I presented 9 patterns I'd designed inspired by India on a tile board. I almost always see things as a series and so tiling my designs seemed the perfect way to show them. Alas, I didn't win, but was thrilled to have been asked to take part and exhibit in such a lovely location. The standard of work was so high - here's a few pictures of the exhibition that Andrea Farmer kindly sent to me (thanks Andrea!) I've also linked to some of the other bloggers - they're fantastic check them out!

Melody Seal, Andrea Farmer and Kellie Black's beautiful pieces.

The winner - Chetan, I love this piece! Such gorgeous colours and illustrative style.

Here's a closer look at my 'Inspiring India' design collection.

Cox & Kings Bloggers Challenge - a little taster!

Here's a sneak peak of a few of the pattern designs I'm working on for the Cox and Kings 'Inspiring India' bloggers challenge. I'm really enjoying this brief and can't wait to see my work in the exhibition! Cox & Kings specialise in escorted tours and luxury holidays. My final piece will be displayed at the Royal Geographical Society (RGS) on the 10th October with a lecture on 'The Mind of India' by Sir Mark Tully. To get tickets to the event please click here.
