Whilst the wind was blowing roofs off houses, tearing down trees and busy destroying umbrellas a group of talented change makers met for the first time.
WE HAD A FULL GUEST LIST!
From 60 registrations and only a limited amount of space for our first event, we really had to put our heads to work and see how we can make the most of it. So we did our best to curate a group which we could see a high potential for collaboration between the attendees. For those who couldn't make it through the storm, were on the waiting list or didn't even hear about it: WE HAVE A SOLUTION! Everyone who attended filled out one of the sheets you can see below, so you can now get in touch with whomever you might like to connect with. YAY!
On this storm evening our host, the circular concept cafe, ISLA took good care of us with zero waste cakes and savoury snacks. Fun fact: On a regular weekend a cafe this size will throw out about 10 litres of milk because it has been heated for coffee, and shouldn't be heated twice. What ISLA does with this is turning it into delicious thyme noted cheese which we were served on dark bread with a honey walnut topping. NOM NOM NOM.
WHO WAS THERE?
Meet this wonderful collection of creative directors, founders, fashion designers, event managers, PR/marketing gurus, photographers, trend casters, techies, bloggers, business and brand consultants, textile designers, fabric producers and a fashion revolution representative.
SPECIAL THANKS to INSTAX for providing us with an an instant photo camera to make networking easier for you <3
WHEN IS THE NEXT EVENT?
For us it was the most important to create an event which connects talented people who want to disrupt the fashion industry. We believe that value based motivation amplifies the potential for successful collaboration, which is the best way to make the sustainable fashion movement grow. To get back to the question: we wanted to wait and see how it goes before we plan the next event, but as the feedback has been fantastic it looks like this will happen again! Until we have a date go ahead and add your name to the registration form, so we can already have you in mind for next time.
