Best of British Design Open Call

Deadline: Unspecified

Best of British Design Open Call

London, UK

Are you a budding new British designer? How would you like to have your products sold at Liberty?

In an ongoing bid to recognise and support new and emerging British design talent, Liberty is calling for all potential designers and creative talents to come forward with their ideas.

A panel of experts comprising of the Liberty buying team, now headed up by ex-Bergdorf Goodman Senior VP Ed Burstell alongside industry experts including top names from press and fashion retail.

From fashion to furniture, hats to handbags, craft to cushions and from ceramics to silverware Liberty is encouraging anyone with a creative passion to bring in their designs for the panel to assess.

But don’t expect a Dragon’s Den – rather it is a chance for new designers to get sympathetic and helpful advice from experts on how to nurture and develop their ideas.

The best designs will get the chance to have their products sold at Liberty, a name synonymous with the very best of new design since its doors first opened in 1875, and now one of London’s best-loved emporiums of style and design.

Arthur Lasenby Liberty trawled the world and created an emporium where the finest could meet the rarest.

In keeping with this heritage Ed Burstell is keen to champion the best new British design and craft. He and his team will offer support and direction for each step of the process that designers need to get their items selling on Liberty’s world renowned shelves.

The next Open Call will be held in January, to register your interest send an email to
