The Mindful Makers: Presentations + Networking Evening


The Mindful Makers: Presentations + Networking Evening

Following the successes of our Female Empowerers & Entrepreneurs series, we are excited to launch our first Mindful Makers: Presentations + Networking evening in collaboration with Offset Warhouse, at WeWork (Waterhouse Square, Holborn).
In 2018 it should be a given that ethical and sustainable values are at the heart of all that we do. Through this evening, we will be exploring the mindful topics from both a designer’s and consumer’s point of view including sustinable fashion, circular economy and empowering business through ethical considerations, and present some independent designers with ethical practices and beautiful products. It will be an exciting forum with for those seeking to discover unique mindful products, learn the stories and processes behind the brands, and introduce key considerations to those who may just be starting to ask the questions around where their products come from. It will also be a great opportunity to connect with fellow London entrepreneurs and professionals.
Hosted by WeWork in Waterhouse Square, with drinks flowing all night long, the evening will unfold with a series of inspirational talks and a panel discussion with some LDC designers with a particular focus on sustainable and ethical considerations, a mini concept store featuring some of our up&coming fashion and lifestyle brands with strong ethical values, and networking with fellow professionals from a range of industries.
