Just in from “an exciting week all around for a little girl sitting on her patio in Venice making things”:
Cate from Venice’s Moonshined Designs was accepted last week by the British Design Embassy as emerging global talent and invited to the London Design Festival next week to meet International Buyers, Designers and Press!
Cate was also just invited to exhibit at Open Design Italia in Modena, Italy in November. This invitation is pretty incredible for a Venice, CA artist, as Open Design Italia is traditionally only for European designers! Open Design Italia celebrates designers who approach design in new ways and they seek to advance self-produced, limited series designs that are very high quality.
