Just before Christmas I was given the fantastic opportunity to attend a blogger brunch hosted by Designers/Makers and the Andaz Hotel. It was a great way to meet some like-minded bloggers (Made in Shoreditch and Magpie on the Run) and find out more about the talented people that make Designers/Makers.
Every month, Designers/Makers host a colourful market in Old Spitalfield, this enables designers across the UK to showcase and sell their work. Designers/Makers cultivate new talent to help them flourish in the creative sphere. It’s a fantastic concept with a variety of designers on board from jewellers to artists, furniture makers to ceramicists. It’s definitely worth a special trip for anyone that has yet to visit.
The brunch was hosted to celebrate the collaboration with the Andaz Hotel on Liverpool Street, which involved a Christmas theme entitled: Andaz Goes Ape. The hotel was covered in ape-themed decorations throughout the lobby and in Old Spitalfields market itself. It’s the first time that I’d been to the Andaz and it certainly won’t be the last. The hotel and brunch were a real pleasure, and I will certainly be sharing the little secret that is the Eastway restaurant with friends.
All in all, it was a fantastic day and I’d like to thank Hollye (Designers/Makers) and Liam (Andaz Hotel) for their kind invite and good company.
