DesignerCon, the hugely successful US event, makes its UK debut this month. Bringing together urban art, cult toys, sneakers, fashion, NFTs and more all under one roof, this is a must-do for all modern collectors and superfans.
DesignerCon is an annual art and design convention that smashes together collectible toys, customs, plush, designer apparel and so much more with urban, underground and pop art in a celebration of all aspects of design from all over the world.
For all those interested in non-fungible tokens, DesignerCon will be joining NFT Art guru Ricky O’Donnell as he hosts a world exclusive live NFT event. Fans can learn how to buy, sell, collect and bask in the glory of NFT platforms and networks, or ask Ricky questions directly in an open forum.
