Written on 13 September 2018 by Giles Cook in

London Design Festival returns for another year later this month, and for design lovers and aficionados, there are numerous events not to miss, many of which are on our doorstep in Mayfair, Pimlico, and Victoria.


An annual event, London Design Festival will run from 15th – 23rd September 2018.

A busy schedule of events and exhibitions will take place in different locations, including in Mayfair’s celebrated design district.

Mayfair Design District Events includes a three-day architecture and photography workshop, a presentation of the works of innovative designers at the 18 Davies Street Gallery, an ‘immersive installation’ titled ‘Nature meets Interior Architecture’, and an exhibition of new furniture inspired by the colours and textures of the Sahara Desert.

The nearby Pimlico Road Design District and Victoria Connections Design District will also host events during the week of the festival.

The Victoria area has undergone significant regeneration in recent years, and the Victoria Connections Design District aims to promote local design businesses and projects while showing visitors ‘how excellence in design is now part of the new landscape of Victoria’.

Meanwhile, a Global Design Forum will be held at The V&A throughout the duration of the festival, featuring a range of talks, debates and workshops on subjects around design and design innovation, including aspects of housing.

London Design Festival is held to promote and celebrate design in all its forms. It welcomes design innovators from across the globe, uniting the international design community while celebrating London as a leading centre for art and design.
