Spotted by Charlotte Abrahams will return to Top Drawer in an extended format later this month following its successful appearance at other Top Drawer events.
Spotted is designed to create an entry point for a whole new generation of exhibitors and this year it will feature up to 12 handpicked design-based businesses who have never before been seen at a major UK trade fair.
‘Everyone featured within the Spotted area is chosen for the quality and originality of the things they make,’ Charlotte says. ‘There’s such a wealth of talent out there but many small companies and individual designer-makers simply can’t afford to break into the trade fair market.’
Within the Spotted feature area will be Spotted Plus, welcoming back to the show six designer-makers who have exhibited at Top Drawer in the past: Fracas Cards (pictured), Karin Akesson, Tamasyn Gambell, Ros Shiers, Sarah Ray and Ali Miller. These exhibitors are only allowed to exhibit in Spotted Plus once so this will be the last chance to catch them there.
