Between 28th May and 16th July the UK's largest graduate art, design and fashion show takes place at the Truman Brewery once more. Regular readers will know that I am a big fan of the Free Range shows, which afford the opportunity to see the best of each year's graduates in one easy to view setting that is especially handy for us east London types.

This year Free Range has appointed a panel of leading industry ambassadors for the first time - including fashion doyens Giles Deacon and Lulu Kennedy - to advise and facilitate projects like the new catwalk shows (which are by invite only). Many universities will also be staging talks and workshops during their show periods to encourage audience participation.

The exhibition's proximity to my house means that I am hopeful to make it along once again, newborn in tow, so look out for my reviews on this website. In the meantime, take a peek through some of my blogs that reveal the wealth of talent I discovered last year.
