Ladies, Wine & Design in Munich

A salon night held for creative lady professionals.
Hosted by Annika Kaltenthaler and Julia Peglow.
Inspired by Jessica Walsh.

Ladies, Wine & Design was started by Jessica Walsh, partner of the design studio Sagmeister & Walsh in New York. We set up the Munich salon after this article in PAGE magazine.

Roughly once in a month, a dedicated group of female design leaders will have wine, dine, and have casual conversations on topics relating to creativity, business and the philosophy of life. Female creatives or design students are welcome. If you are interested don’t hesitate to email Julia or Annika. Also, please get in touch if you’d like to host us in your space, teach a workshop or be a guest speaker. Tickets are limited, first come first serve. It’s free to join.

TBD A great woman

We do a lot of reading and writing. About design, the business, family life, everyday creativity and everyday philosophy. Here’s a selection of articles or e-zines that have inspired us, or articles we have written ourselves.

Edition F is the digital home for women who want more, in life and business

Numbers show that there’s a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we’re inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women in Munich, Germany or worldwide we have admired, worked with, or had our eye on. Get inspired!
