The shopfronts along Redchurch Street will be decorated with vinyl images and a QR code to discover the work of local designers, artists and craftspeople
Graphic images of ‘Cabinets of Curiosities’ will go up in the shop windows along Redchurch Street from September 12.
Each vinyl sticker includes a QR code to connect visitors with an online showcase for a local designer, artist or craftsperson.
