Ladies, Wine &
a bit of Design
A conversation series powered by Jessica Walsh
with ILLO's ladies
A salon night held monthly to gather women working in the creative industry. We’ll wine and have casual conversations on a wide variety of topics relating to creativity, business and life. If you’re a female creative and would like to join, please shoot an email to email@example.com.
Talks are going to be held in Italian or in English, if international guests will join the night.
Say It, Wear It.
The event Say It, Wear It. wants to celebrate the meaningful relationship between women and fashion with a pattern exhibition dedicated to women empowerment. The textile designer Silvia Stella Osella will introduce the exhibition with a talk about her experience between fashion and graphic design and how it’s possible to improve the current women situation in the creative industry. The event will start with a live performance of the talented illustrator Shutupclaudia.
From June 7th to July 2nd
Say It, Wear It. | Open Call
It’s more than just fashion, it’s a statement: clothes are used as a means of self-expression in many cultures and colorful patterns and textiles sometimes can help women convey their message to society. Whether it’s about how they feel, their personality or their beliefs: it’s all out in the open. Today we’re launching a textile-based open call to invite artists to express what women empowerment means to them with a pattern.

A social-detox aperitif to discuss cyber harassment against women done... by women themselves! Smartphones in airplane mode and detoxifying cocktails are the main ingredients of this screen-free evening.
Women are multitaskers, always striving to find the time to be a perfect wife, a brilliant professional, a good friend and a super mom. Social pressure that could disappear once we accept our limits and embrace an equal rights/duties approach.
From July 10th to Semptember 2nd 2018

Not Safe For Work
Express your point of view on which behaviors you think society still considers inappropriate for women in 2018 - not only in the workplace but in all contexts, according to all those social, religious, cultural constraints which have been trying to push women’s empowerment back ever since the old days.

Basta chiacchiere, è tempo di sporcarsi le mani! Realizzeremo insieme una serie di gif in set design su quelli che consideriamo i comportamenti inadeguati sul posto di lavoro. Il tutto in chiave ironica e a suon di colori pop. L’evento sarà diviso in due appuntamenti:

Cosa significa per una donna lavorare in un ambiente prevalentemente maschile? Quali sono i suoi pro e i suoi contro e come si è evoluto il rapporto con l'altro sesso sul posto di lavoro? Tirate fuori il vostro completo elegante, ne parleremo in una location d'eccezione di fronte ad un whisky on the rocks!

Design, not for pussies
Dress code: tuxedo e papillon ;)
Anche se mettiamo lo smalto, non vi aspettate di vedere solo cuoricini e coniglietti nei nostri design.

Review di lavori di illustrazione, con risvolti non da femminucce.
Ispirazioni, viaggi e sketch: il tutto su una tovaglia a quadretti con un cestino da pic nic e una buona bottiglia di vino!

Chicks & Tech
Pensate che degli uomini potrebbero fare lo stesso?
Una serata tra ragazze che si occupano di tecnologia e che lavorano in ambiti di solito prettamente maschili (siamo comunque signore, quindi no drones allowed!).
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. She believes we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. We couldn't agree more, and we also think it would be fun to meet other lady creatives, so we reached out to her and Ladies, Wine & Design Turin was born.
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. Who are the ladies inspire you the most?
