Ladies, Wine & Design Zurich is a platform to get together, share thoughts, support each other through mentorship, experiences and championing others’ work! Every evening will take place at a different workplace that allows us to gain insight into other designers’, photographers’, illustrators’, artists’,… workspaces.
