Tea With Lidewij Edelkoort






















I got to hang with The Mother of Trend Forecasting Lidewij Edelkoort. We had a cuppa tea, shared a gluten free scone topped with fat free cream and sugar free organic jam and had a little tête-à-tête about the happenings. Nothing major you know how it goes.

If you don’t know who my gurl Li is, all you need to know is that she is a genius and a beast in the field. She is FEROSH at what she does. That’s pretty much rounds it up fabulously. If you looking for a more encyclopaedia inclined credentials, may you please do some homework?

Ok fine I will let you go off easily, if you in a cocktail setting and the name comes up just say; O Li? “The British design magazine i-D listed her among the world's 40 most important designers and Time magazine named her one of the 25 most influential fashion experts of our day. She was just in town a few weeks ago for Design Indaba 2012 complements of Woolworths. I love her, she is a genius!” and swiftly move on to another circle for a different chat.

I am sure you all know why? Etiquette #101 don’t hawk the conversation, be gracious, get in, go in, get on and get out. Work the room!

Why was she in town you may ask?  Click here Doll Face Deluxe: http://accordingtojerri.blogspot.com/2012/03/design-indaba-2012-trend-seminar-with.html
