Mayfair is the leading global destination for contemporary and collectible design. In the past few years, the area has seen an increased focus towards contemporary design with the existing galleries and auction houses, as well as the opening of new gallery spaces which enhance the design-centred character of the area. Mayfair Design District aims to showcase this developing identity, whilst promoting it to a wider audience. As part of The London Design Festival, Mayfair Design District will bring together a series of exhibitions, openings and installations, with the objective of nurturing and cultivating the creative disciplines found in this thriving community. In addition to contemporary design, Mayfair still boasts to this day practitioners with an illustrious creative heritage, including cordwainers, milliners, tailors, jewellers and cabinet makers.
