January 2018 *New Events Coming Soon*

We'll announce new events for 2018 shortly! We're in the works planning away. Check back for more information!

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. We believe we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Initially we loved the idea of causal salon nights to collaborate, meet and share with other creative ladies. So we reached out to Jessica Walsh to bring Ladies, Wine & Design to Philadelphia.

Here are a few women in and around Philly that we have admired, worked with, or had our eyes on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
