Donna Wilson's 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition - Opening Night!

Wednesday, 18 September 2013

Last night was a very exciting occasion for team Donna Wilson as it was the opening of Donna's 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition!   Our opening kicked off a 5-day celebration during the London Design Festival which features a lot of fun things including: a retrospective exhibition showcasing Donna's creations across the decade, a silent auction for your chance to win limited edition collectibles from Donna's archive, a photo-booth with oversized knitted props, and a pop-up shop!

Over the course of the show there will also be a number of interactive activities including a talk by Donna TONIGHT at 5pm, and free craft workshops for adults and children this Saturday!
Our opening included a performance by singer-songwriter Gideon Conn, whose quirky and poetic tunes so perfectly suited the event! More information about Gideon can be found here!

Here are a few snapshots from the opening:

And a few of our photobooth images!
