Mayfair Design District brings together the very best in collectible and contemporary design, with a programme of exhibitors in the neighbourhood. Starting with its Autumn programme at this year’s London Design Festival in September, Westgreen’s partnership with MDD will build on the success of 2018. The main objective is to promote the area as the leading global destination for collectible and contemporary design. The partnership demonstrates Westgreen’s ongoing commitment to working with the very best in the creative community and the luxury retail market. Westgreen will work with Mayfair Design District to champion great design, promote Mayfair as a hub of creativity and celebrate the vibrant leadership of the district and its community.
“I am delighted to see the growth Mayfair Design District has achieved in the three short year’s since its founding. The depth and breadth of the projects on show this year are testament to Mayfair’s draw as it cements its position as the leading global destination for collectible and contemporary design.”

About Mayfair Design District
Mayfair is the leading global destination for contemporary and collectible design. In the past few years, the area has seen an increased focus towards contemporary design with the existing galleries and auction houses, as well as the opening of new gallery spaces which enhance the design-centred character of the area. Mayfair Design District aims to showcase this developing identity, whilst promoting it to a wider audience.
As part of The London Design Festival, Mayfair Design District will bring together a series of exhibitions, openings and installations, with the objective of nurturing and cultivating the creative disciplines found in this thriving community. In addition to contemporary design, Mayfair still boasts to this day practitioners with an illustrious creative heritage, including cordwainers, milliners, tailors, jewellers and cabinet makers.
