Ladies, Wine Design was started by Jessica Walsh when she realized that sometimes women can be competitive or unsupportive of one another. Only a small percent of creative directors are women, and LW&D wants to help change this through mentorship circles, portfolio reviews, talks, and creative meet-ups. In less than two years of launching, we've spread to chapters in over 180 cities all over the world. Have a look at the global page here.
