As previously reported Robin represented Kent Area in the Designer of the Year competition. The competition was run under the title “Timeless Beauty” and Robin chose Charles Rennie MacIntosh for his inspiration. After 3 gruelling days in which he had to create a pedestal, a wall hanging, a petite, a still life and do an imposed class, Robin’s hard work was finally announced as the winner and Robin was presented with the trophy by Sue Brinton Nafas National Chairman.
We felt it was appropriate for Kent Area to recognise this amazing achievement and so at the AGM Area Chairman, Jean Schofield, presented Robin with a gift. Like Robin, the Area took Charles Rennie MacIntosh as the theme, but this beauty is not “timeless” as Robin was presented with a Charles Rennis MacIntosh designed watch with our love. The watch is inscribed on the back and it says “you did us proud” which you did so on behalf of us all many many congratulations.
As Robin came to the stage there was a well deserved standing ovation.
