o More awareness and publicity about the resources available
o Part of the site with current job opportunities
o More designer contacts
o How a student can introduce themselves to other designers
o Opening a LFF store in Carnaby Street is a really, really good idea and it would be brilliant to open more stores (like in Birmingham and other big cities) …count me in.
o PR, jobs within the industry if not yet ready to start up own business
o More contacts and info
o I definitely think there is a need for a network between new companies and manufacturers who will make small runs.
o Incorporating manufacturers and other business areas which designers may not have links with.
