Brands & Signs Exhibition

The highlight of this year’s festival edition of Month of Design is the international product and fashion design exhibition “Brands & Signs”, showcasing designs of carefully selected brands and designers  from South-East Europe.

Month of Design is an annual festival of know-how and creativity in design. It offers platform for discourse focused on exploring the role of design in creative industries, business, culture and social practices. The main aim of Month of Design is to increase the competitiveness of businesses and society, establish knowledge transfers between developed and less developed economies, and emphasize the strategic, economic and cultural advantages of design.

Furthermore Month of Design also offers a diverse rage of conferences, discussions and workshops. For this years edition I was invited for several fashion related talks that took place on October 7th. My programme included 'contact tables - speed dating' with designers, Stage 180° talk with Eric Maj Potočnik and Round Table discussion about 'identity and fashion'.
