Lanky Girl Attends Zaha Hadid Design Gallery Launch Party

Zaha Hadid recently launched a new gallery showcasing her furniture and designs on Goswell Road in Islington. Her opening also coincided with Clerkenwell Design Week. I’ve always been a fan of Zaha Hadid’s work especially her design for the Olympic  aquatic centre.   The party itself was good fun, I mingled with design types and trendy looking architects and Zaha herself made an appearence (I was too shy to ask for a photo). If you are a fan of her work and find yourself in the area I suggest you go and visit as the gallery is now open to the public. Here are some of the things you can expect to see.
