Quotes

"There are many, many companies with many stacking chairs, but we felt there was nothing good," Laub said. "With all of them, you have the shell and the legs which you screw together with lots of parts. Put 300 of them in a room and its very unquiet."
Isobel Dennis, director of Upper Street Events, commented: "It is crucial that the design industry is supported on a political level and the main parties understand and acknowledge the importance of this sector.  Therefore, these visits to New Designers were really important to ensure that we are raising the awareness of the exceptional talent at the show with senior government officials. Many of our exhibiting graduates will go on to join the creative industries which continues to be a strong contributor to the UK's economy. We look forward to building on this interest in our 30th anniversary year in 2015."
...FDCI does not act as an intermediary between the designers and the buyers; it merely provides designers a platform to showcase their creativity. "We at the FDCI are providing facility for the ramp shows. We are providing the best venue in the city. Fashion lovers are coming here and placing orders. I do not have the figures to tell how much business designers transact in every fashion week organised by us. But I can say this for a fact that each collection lasts a full season."
Commenting on the launch of the hub, Stephen Williams, minister for communities, said: "Making our surroundings and buildings accessible to everyone is vital to giving people equal opportunities. Government and construction professionals have already made significant progress but there is still more we can do to improve building design. The launch of this hub plays an important part in driving towards a more inclusive environment."
