“Selecting for Spotted is always exciting and the showcase of new designers just goes from strength to strength. The fact that we can put together such a large selection of new companies is evidence of the wealth of design that exists in the UK today and I’m delighted to be working with Top Drawer again to help these new brands launch their new products to an international retail audience.” Charlotte Abrahams
