Alfies Antique Market Alfies and the Church Street Design Trail
As part of the London Design Festival Alfies Antiques Market will run a day of special events on Thursday, 24 September, consisting of talks, exhibitions, demonstrations and workshops.
Join Emilia & Luis at their Thirteen Upholstery Workshop for an upholstery demonstration – watch as they give well worn furniture a dashing new lease of life.
Leslie of Tin Tin Collectables will be hosting a talk about the influence of politics on fashion design through the ages, and a 20th century design exhibition will run throughout the centre, taking in The Moderns, Matt Mitchell London and many more Alfies dealers.
There will also be a fantastic tour of the Church Street shops organised by Leon Young, which will give a fascinating insight into the range of design pieces on the street and how many of these dealers launched their businesses on Church Street.
Not to mention that Sam Gullam of Lacock Gullam will discussing how he conceived the design for Church Street’s new market sign posts. The signs reflect the vibrant nature of the street market and at the same time draw some influence from the modernist nature of the antiques sold by the local shops and Alfies. Many more events to be confirmed!
