Over the last two weeks I have worked with the nicest group of students any tutor could wish for. Students studied my course in Interior Design for Retail at Central St. Martins College of Art here in central London travelling from South America, Germany, India, Thailand, France, Turkey and London to take the two week course. During that time students visited numerous factories and showrooms relating to the Retail Industry and completed a design project within their area of interest. It really has been an exciting couple of weeks and it was a pleasure to share their journey with them. The outcomes included a retail space for Strumpet and Pink, an ecological jewellery brand and one stop shop for those all important dinner party gifts. As many of the group fly to Milan to continue their studies and the others back to their daily lives in their respective countries I hope they will pursue their interest within this industry. It is always sad to part ways, although I hope we will see them crop up again as accomplished designers within this industry in the future.
