Costume designer Jacqueline White (left) and knitwear designer Lindsay McKean were among the first to move in to Netil House. The pair were responsible for the 'Netil House Revealed' evening which saw most of the studios open to the public. Another one is planned for October 6 and the event will become biannual.
