Design Show Liverpool

IN what has become, over recent years, a run-down part of Liverpool's City Center, there is a hidden gem, the new Contemporary Urban Centre venue.  The venue is a fantastically converted warehouse and its first major event was the Design Show Liverpool that took up several floors of the building.   The event opened on Wednesday, 18 June 2008 and ran until 22 June 2008.  This is a very important event in the international design calendar and a prestigious one for Liverpool, so it was also fitting the launch of this yearly event is in Liverpool's European Capital Of Culture Year.  Showcasing at the event were, trade buyers and collectors and the very best of product design, cutting-edge technology and stylish living. This was a truly unique opportunity for the public to browse and buy from over 150 selected designers, innovative work, commission unique pieces for indoors and outdoors. All the exhibitors represented the best in regional, national and international design and contemporary fashion. Visitors to the show were able to see a huge range of functional items with a twist, from furniture, glass, ceramics, lighting and eco-design to garden products, clothing, jewellery and fashion accessories. On offer were fashion shows, workshops and product presentations. Not forgetting an interactive play area where parents and children enjoyed themselves in a stimulating and safe environment. At the launch event, on Wednesday night, style supremo Wayne Hemingway MBE presented The Designers of the Future Awards, sponsored by Crown and DuPont Corian, aimed at young designers aged 14 to 16 years, with imagination and passion. The over all winner of the overall Schools And Students Prize at Design Show Liverpool was Lauren Langley from Belvedere Academy for the Chesteazze. He also presented awards to university students.  This event is one to keep any eye on and well worth a visit next year!
