The label will give visitors an insight into making lace lingerie through demonstrations, as well as a talk by one of the Eres makers. The brand explains that "lingerie styles conceal a horde of technical details such as chain stitching and flat assembly of pieces." The Eres talk is sold out, but visitors can come and see demonstrations between 10am - 5pm on May 3.

London Craft Week launched in 2015 and then had 70 events and 20,000 visits. This second edition will feature almost twice as many events, 130, ranging from hidden workshops to luxury brands.

“London has long had a Fashion Week and a Design Festival. Now there is London Craft Week.  A magical combination of imagination, individuality, passion and skill found in the best-made of things'', said Guy Salter, Chairman of London Craft Week.

Patrick Grant, the British designer who is the Creative Director of Norton & Sons and E. Tautz, will also take part in London Craft Week. On May 4 he will talk through the process of designing and developing new tweeds from cloth to garment, with Brian Hinnigan, Design Director of Scottish cashmere brand Johnstons of Elgin.
