A/W, 10—12 September 2017 | Olympia London

| S/S, 14—16 January 2018



We bring you PaperFest to the world class Greetings & Stationery section.

Returning for the A/W17 edition of Top Drawer, PaperFest provides a truly inspiring space combining talks and creativity at the heart of the Greetings & Stationery area. The event is free to attend. 

Launched in 2012 in Clerkenwell by Abigail Warner, PaperFest started as a niche, rustic event and became an international sell out. The S/S17 speakers included the Managing Director of Waterstones, PR Manager of Selfridges and many more.

See the full A/W17 schedule here. 

PaperFest will continue to be closely supported by paper connoisseurs, G. F Smith.
