September is always a busy month for both Design and Fashion, however today I will be focusing on the must see spots of London Design Festival.
Kicking off the Design Festival is 100% Design which started off on the 19th of September. This is an annual event which I go to every year. This year is bigger and better as the event makers of Clerkenwell Design Week have taken over and revolutionized the event.
What's made it great this year is that they have five categories.
100% Kitchen & Bathrooms
100% Eco Design & Build
So you are sure to find something you will love. Design houses involved include Knoll, Herman Miller, Boss Design Group, Elle Decoration and Mix interiors to name just a few.
MUST SEE SHOW its open to the public on Saturday the 23rd of September and open to members of the Trade from 19th-23rd September.

London Design Festival is an annual event and is in its 10th year making it a milestone. LDF focuses on putting together international and commercial events which hold seminars, events and are great for networking.
Here is a list of key dates of where to be and what not to miss:

I thought I would hit you guys with a midweek blog, I came across this beautifully designed building, and I felt I had to share it with the world.
Porsche Pavilion by Henn
The organic lagoon shape spreads across the whole park, which cantilevers towards a pool of water. The curving lines derive from the shape and design of the porsche. The dynamic pavilion has an essence of an aquatics centre similar to that in the olympic village. The pavilion acts as a spatial enclosure as well as being a load bearing structure.
