Ladies, Wine & Design

Ladies, Wine, Design &
a little bit of Black

A conversation series started by Jessica Walsh,
hosted by Sabine Marinescu and Janina Poesch

A salon night in Stuttgart held regularly, initially limited to a small group of ladies. We’ll wine, dine, and have casual conversations on a variety of topics relating to creativity, business, and life. If you are a female creative and would like to join, please do email us. The number of attendees is limited, but varies according to the capacity of each event. We try our best to make our events free of charge and our reservations open to all on a first come, first served basis. Additionally, please get in touch if you'd like to host us in your space, teach a workshop, or be a guest speaker.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few women creative directors. Jessica believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more. As we are both young women in creative business we want to build a community and to start a network for inspiring and interesting ladies – here in Stuttgart!

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 we have admired, worked with, or had our eye on!
