Store launch for West Midlands' hot talent


Next Tuesday evening marks the opening of Birmingham’s latest retail venture and here's the wonderful thing -  it is all about and run by the great design and entrepreneurial talent, including many from  the Interiors & Lifestyle Futures community, working away in the West Midlands.

Taking up over 2,000 square foot of retail space in The Mailbox, the Birmingham Made Me store is divided into four zones; applied arts, fashion and lifestyle, jewellery, textiles and homewares.



Chris O’Neil, Executive Dean of Birmingham Institute of Art and Design, Birmingham City University, will deliver the opening address for this flagship of fresh ideas, hot talent and design-led thinking.

If you’d like to be part of the evening launch (5.00pm-7.30pm 15 May) at the Mailbox,  please email caroline.thorley@bcu.ac.uk as soon as possible.

Of course, if you can’t make the launch, just call in to the Birmingham Made Me store during normal shopping hours and meet the faces behind the West Midlands' innovative interiors and lifestyle products.


Interiors & Lifestyle Futures is one of the founders of Birmingham Made Me, which is part of the IDEA Birmingham initiative.
