Saturday, May 25, 2013Hello dear readers!
I am very excited to announce that I will be part of Edmonton's Next Gen DIYalogue Talks Fashion event on June 25 here in Edmonton. Tickets are $8 in advance or $10 at the door, and here you can find the Facebook event.
The event is described as "speed dating for mentorship", and involves groups going to each table for 15 minutes and talking with each mentor. I've been assured that it's very casual and I don't need to prepare, but I'm not so sure what I'm going to talk about. Hopefully people are interested in my tales of being the victim of semi-voyeristic photos and how to control circle skirts on Edmonton's windy days ;)
I'm billed along with some big names in Edmonton's fashion scene — including Janis of Dress Me Dearly, the ladies behind the custom footwear company Poppy Barley (think eShakti, but for shoes) and Caroline Gault, FASHION magazine editor for Alberta — so I hope I get a chance to pick their brains during the break.
I hope any readers I have in the area can come, especially if I haven't met you yet! I'll be tossing in some goodies for a door prize, and hopefully can find some things for the clothing swap.
Bye for now!
