Hello, Friends! After taking a bit of a blogging hiatus, Philly Swap is awakening from our winter hibernation and is excited about the promises of Spring! In the upcoming months, we’ll be partnering with local businesses and artists to host film screenings, smaller swaps and upcycling workshops. In addition to showcasing artists on our blog, we also want this to be a space to promote the efforts and events of other amazing creative and socially-minded folks. Check out this webinar (register with the discount code listed below) and this free entrepreneurial event taking place this month!
Behind the Seams with Kristin Haskins Simms, Best Strangefruit
On March 16, 2011, The National Association of Sustainable Fashion Designers is hosting the Sustainable Fashion Entrepreneurs Circle in partnership with SBN to welcome Project Runway season 8’s Kristin Haskins Simms for an evening of fashion-minded conversation. A Philadelphia native, Ms. Simms wears multiple hats as a self-taught apparel designer, freelance graphic designer, and adjunct professor in graphic design. She’ll share stories from her time with Heidi, Tim and the rest of the Project Runway gang, offer insights into launching her company, Strangefruit, and show off some sneak peeks from the new clothing line!
This interactive event will bring together regional fashion entrepreneurs to swap ideas, discuss challenges and engage in meaningful dialogue. Let’s create and support fashion that is not only good looking, but also cares about the good of our community, our economy and our planet. How can we help to make fashion more sustainable? Come and find out.
This event will be held at SBN Conference Room, 1528 Walnut Street, 21st Floor Philadelphia, PA 19102, and registration is FREE. For more information or to register, please visit http://fashioncirclemarch.eventbrite.com
