2013 Blogtour London Is Here!!!

Modenus's sponsored  BlogTour London officially begins today!!  Blogtour was designed to create a dialogue within the international design and cultural communities in the US and the UK.   Our visit to London will hopefully highlight the importance and influence of London as a major design hub.   There is so much to see and do!  We will be taking in all London Design Week has to offer.  So far, I have only met part of the our group, as we have trickled in at various times.  Our first official meeting is today at 1:00!  I can't wait to experience London Design week!  We will meet our British peers and have the opportunity to be immersed in all the design related events the week has to offer.  There will be opportunities to interview top British Designers as well as visit major exhibits.  Today our tour begins with a visit to design junction and a private media tour by Deborah Spencer, visit to Laufen, then drinks with Barbara Chandler at Joy of Design.  We will be reporting  back our findings, watch for them on all our social media channels!
