Studio Help Japan Day

On 23rd March we had a HELP JAPAN DAY in the studio. Akiko, our very own Japanese designer, organised various events for the studio to partake in during the day to help raise money for the British Red Cross Tsunami Appeal.

During lunch Akiko gave the studio a quick lesson on Japanese calligraphy followed by an evening of Gyoza (dumplings) and Yakiniku (Japanese BBQ) cooking washed down with a few bottles of Japanese beer. Even a pair of Japanese school girl socks were auctioned off, after a flurry of bids Adrian won the prized socks!

The studio collectively raised £380 from the day. If you too would like to donate to the Japan Tsunami Appeal please go to
