Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more, and we also think it would be fun to meet other lady creatives, so we reached out to her and Ladies, Wine & Design Ibiza was born.

Here you can find some articles and other initiatives that, we consider, can be of great interest:

Numbers show that there is a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we often feel more inspired by other talented women. Here are few inspirational women based in Ibiza - with whom we have had the pleasure to work with or whose work we do admire! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
