The capital of the UK is divided in many different popular areas. There exist villages, boroughs and postcode zones. At the same time everyone may come across the design districts in London. One of the most visited one during London Design Festival is Brompton Design District.
As a matter of fact, the Brompton Design District is a partnership between leading international brands, much loved independent retailers, neighbourhood restaurants and cultural institutions. Moreover, Brompton is an all year round destination with its world class museums, design showrooms and restaurants, offering something for all the family. Truth be told, in Brompton you may spend a day out that will leave you culturally and physically sated.
CovetED would like to describe some interesting events that will take place in this district in London.

There is a chance to join curators, designers, industry professionals and specialists for a series of in-depth panel discussions of the future of luxury for a V&A TALK – FUTURE LUXURY, FUTURE MATERIALS. While certain materials have an enduring relationship to the idea of luxury due to their perennially high cost, changing ecological, technological, economic and social conditions all have an impact on the public perception of value.
At the meeting people will discuss whether materials that we take for granted as universally accessible today become key markers of exclusive access and class distinction in the near future.
Address: V&A, Cromwell Road, London, SW7 2RL
