Javier Garcia-Alzorriz completed his KLC Full Time Diploma HE Interior Design and went on to achieve great things within the design industry. Javier's visits to KLC are inspirational to all as he shares his personal journey about his studies, entering the industry and exciting projects to date. He is currently MD and Senior designer for Jo Berryman Studio. Jo Berryman Studio is a high-end interior design company creating spaces for ambitious individuals and brands.
In 2011 he won the BIID award for Creativity and Communication, as well as the 'The Deco Debutante Award,' granted by industry members after finishing at KLC School of Design.
With a combination of creative-technical skills, Javier has been involved in most of JBS’s projects including Danielle Bux’s Victorian mansion, cover of Living Etc in Sept 2016.
Javier's own flat was cover of Homes & Property Evening Standard in Jan 2017.
Come along and meet fellow students and KLC tutors in a relaxed and informal environment – Focus is a highlight of the UK interior design calendar and is not to be missed!
Tickets for this event are £30 per person and places are strictly limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.
KLC has also arranged entrance for students to Decorex at Syon Park. This is a separate event - you should enrol as ‘trade’ direct with Decorex providing ‘KLC School of Design’ as the name of your organisation. Trade tickets are £15 each and are not included as part of the KLC event. There will be a courtesy shuttle bus running between Focus and Decorex during the working day – check running time locally.
We look forward to seeing you there!
