Mrs. Duncan and Alan Hughes attended a service to celebrate the life of Annie Stevens. As a former President of BIID and a very talented designer, Annie was known to many as was obvious from the overwhelming numbers attending her funeral.
To us at Inchbald she was a most energetic and generous contributor. She organised student site visits to her projects, she lectured often sharing information about her methods and practice, she employed our graduates and mentored many alongside being a much-loved judge at our graduation exhibitions.
Aside from this she was a committed friend to Inchbald and those who work here. We will not forget the lunches, peppered with hysterically funny anecdotes in amongst what must be some of the widest ranging conversations to be heard within Chelsea’s hallowed portals.
She will be sadly missed but remembered with a smile. The thoughts of all at Inchbald are with her children Bella and Seb, whom we thank for their gracious hospitality.
