BROOKLYN -

The borough's premiere design event showcasing some of Brooklyn's best is taking place at the Brooklyn Navy Yard this weekend, just in time for Mother's Day.

Sofia Zimmerman is just one of more than 60 Brooklyn designers, business owners and artists showcasing their work at the Brooklyn Designs this weekend. Zimmerman launched her furniture collection at the event three years ago.

Zimmerman says beyond giving people a chance to purchase some cool, new things, it unites the whole creative community in Brooklyn.

Panel discussions, demos and workshops are among many things planned for the weekend.

The event started up back in 2003.
