This morning I was up at 5:30 am and headed to W1B to join the queue here.
I arrived at 7:30am and already there were at least 40 others in front. Thankfully the British weather was kind, not to cold and it didn't rain. So with my work packaged up , and my nerves just about in tact , I waited with everyone else and was given the opportunity to speak with a member of the team.
Five minutes is not long to talk about your work. Although I wasn't shortlisted the feedback was very useful, and confirmed that I'm on the right track with my plans, ideas, designs and market. All in all, it was a great experience, I met some fantastic designers and I came away with new contacts, ideas to develop and some people to ring !
