Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies, Wine & Design 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. In less than a year of launching, LW&D has spread to chapters in over 120 cities all over the world.

After many years in business as designer, creative director and managing director, Annika and Julia set up the Munich chapter of LW&D in 2017. Regularly, 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 you can book an event via Eventbrite. Also, please email Annika 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.

January 26, 2018, 7.30pm Stories of fear and failure

Ladies, believe us: Even the toughest and roughest in the grown-up world are haunted by doubts, loneliness and fearful thoughts. It's only, nobody talks about it. But wouldn't it be a relief to know nobody's perfect? And you're not alone?

Join in an open talk about the ups and downs, the wins and losses of a creative career.

Thanks to our host:
Photographer Kathrin Makowski

Special Guest: The ladies from CUT Magazine

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!
