Paul will also take to the Inspiring Retail Stage on Sunday for ‘Design Inspirations: In conversation with Paul Moneypenny’. Paul broke into the design community via BBC2’s Interior Design Masters, and will talk design, inspiration, the difference between trends and fads, and his top tips on how to make creative decisions that have impact.

Autumn Fair is where serious buyers come to source and where orders are made. Home to the largest selection of home, gift and fashion products and inspiration in one destination, Autumn Fair's encompasses the best in design and opportunities for great business.”


Craig Unsworth, Co-CEO of the luxury and lifestyle online platform The Mór Card who is attending Autumn Fair adds: "Autumn Fair is a chance for us to discover new and exciting brands that we know our customers will love. We can't wait to connect with a curated collection of unique and innovative businesses and introduce our membership to them. This marketplace is an opportunity to explore new possibilities and handpick brands for our members that put quality, personal service, and attention to detail above everything else."
