January 2018 Social Media / Personal showcase

With our portfolios filled with diverse work, what is the best way to brand and present ourselves?
How can we leverage social to the constantly-changing landscape to our advantage?

February 2018 Personal projects

Experimentation and self-examine is crucial to move forward both skilfully and conceptually. In the January meeting, while presenting some of our best personal work, we will discuss about creativity outside our everyday jobs and what strategies we use to stay motivated.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few female Creative Directors. She believes we can create change through mentorship and championing each others' work. As a studio owner and someone who lived and worked in four European countries, I couldn't agree more. I'd like to change that by providing the space and time to talk about our achievements openly, listen to each other and most of all encourage ourselves to do more.

Numbers show us that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we are inspired by most are often other talented ladies.
Here are some of the women we admire from a cross section of design, technology, fashion and fine art, women we would enjoy a drop of wine with including a selection of female creatives we have been fortunate to work with or have met somewhere, sometime in Prague!
