Diane Harding, Managing Director of Norfolk House and BA Hons Textile Design, states, ‘There is nothing that gives me more pleasure than helping talented new graduates find their first design job in the industry. Getting them on that first step of the ladder is extremely rewarding.’

Diane’s excellent eye for design and colour helps her to spot talent and marry the right designer with the right brand.
