Top Drawer 2013 – Exhibitors Sneak Peek – Karin Åkesson

Top Drawer, 13-15 January 2013, will once again bring together an inspirational showcase of over 800 carefully selected British and international suppliers to the convenient central location of Earls Court, London. Top Drawer showcases the newest product launches, cutting edge designs and must-have products for 2013.

We have teamed up with Top Drawer to give you a sneak peek look at some of the exhibitors that will be showcasing their products this coming January. We have also asked them for tips and advice for other exhibitors taking part.

Karin Åkesson is a Swedish born illustrator who produces whimsical, nostalgic drawings and typographic prints of memorable movie quotes, flora and fauna and tiny birds. Her beautiful designs put emphasis on the sunny things in life.

Hello Karin!

Why did you choose Top Drawer to exhibit your products?

I was selected to take part in Spotted – a section in Top Draw with designers new to trade, in September, it was a great show and really rewarding. I am now super excited to part of Spotted Plus in January. Top Draw is such an a great meeting place and a fantastic platform to get lots of exposure and show off what I do.

What are you most excited about Top Drawer?

I am looking forward to meet lots of new buyers and fellow designers and very excited to get feedback on my new products!

Why should people come and hunt down your stand?

If you are looking for gifts and houseware with an optimistic sentiment please come and visit me! All products are designed and hand made in britain and my mission is to try and make you smile a bit!

What’s your top tip for other sellers who are showcasing their products at the show?

I think the best advice I got myself was to wear comfy shoes… the days are long but lot of fun! And make sure you take time to have a look around the show.

Thank you Karin. You will find Karin at Spp3, be sure to go say hi!
