MARY MCDERMOTT - CREATIVE DIRECTOR www.wemakelondon.co.uk
"In such a price conscious climate buyers are thinking more about how they spend their money, by buying handmade they know they are buying unique, quality items while supporting small independent designer-makers and businesses."
As well as running We Make London, she has previously worked professionally in the jewellery business for 13 years and as a freelance events organiser. Mary is currently focusing all her attention on We Make London to continue to deliver affordable opportunities to designer-makers and unite buyers with designer-makers who offer something unique in today’s fast-paced, throw-away world of mass production.
As well as working hard on the We Make London events and projects Mary is the first point of contact for anyone who is dealing with We Make London such as stall holders and Press.
