French Fashion Day at the Hotel Meridian. Met with French manufacturers – arranged by the French Embassy. This was a great opportunity to talk with French manufacturers who may be able to assist with production of the collection. Some examples of their work on show, very impressive, and sadly so lacking in the UK. Was impressed by the quality of manufacture.

Saturday - Tate Modern to see the Martin Kippenberger and Albers/Moholy-Nagy exhibitions. Very interesting. Really enjoyed the Kippenberger furniture installation– reminded me of the V&A stores, with a rather strange sense of humour. Monday - LCF. Finalised sketchbook and made some copies. Dropped off to bookbinders. V&A attended Blythe House again this time to see the furniture stores – guided tour of the stores by Kate. This was a wonderful opportunity to see the stores dedicated to furniture and other objects. Was impressed by the large storage facilities.
