There are so many amazing people within (or wanting to join) the textiles industry. We are excited to host a Fashion and Textiles Mixer for this community!
This is an opportunity to casually connect with our sustainability-minded network. Get support, ask for advice, and make connections those interested in the many different aspects of the textiles industry: designers and tailors, product developers, manufacturers, retailers, academics and consumers.
This event is FREE and unstructured - but we would appreciate your RSVP via Eventbrite so we can plan for space. Drinks and food will be available for purchase at the bar.

Our Who's Who series shines a light on movers-and-shakers in fashion and textiles related fields—introducing you to new brands, ideas and connections with a sustainable focus.
Coinciding with Fashion Revolution Week and Earth Week, our next Who's Who will focus on ways to slow down the cycle of fast fashion by reusing and re-purposing garments that already exist—in our own closets and through secondhand retail.

Hear about Reborn's mission to reduce textile waste through upcycling from the brand's founder and CEO, Emily Neville.
Speak with personal stylists from Wirl about how to feel confident and stylish in your wardrobe while keeping sustainability in mind.
Your $15 ticket includes appetizers and event admission. A cash bar will be available as well as plenty of time for Q&A and socializing.
