FRINGE: Critical Insights into New Fashion Systems

Presented by Kordal Studio

In conversation with:

Arianne Engelberg, Creative Director of The New Denim Project

Jaadi Fonseca, BFA Fashion Design student at Parsons School of Design

Carmen Gama, Renew Designer at Eileen Fisher

Khira Goins-Paxton, Founder of Portion Magazine

Moderated by Brittany Dickinson, designer and educator

Please join us for a special evening celebrating circular fashion systems with a positive impact on our world. This invitation-only event, part of the Kordal Studio pop-up at the Wythe Hotel, will bring together designers, students, makers, systems thinkers, and other fashion activists who are seeking ways to shape their careers without compromising their ethics.

In fashion, and in society today, there are rarely prescribed linear pathways with clear end goals but rather an ever-shifting series of unexpected events which must be navigated in creative ways. In this spirit, we are bringing together a panel of four inspiring women who are each crafting innovative pathways at the fringes of the fashion industry. We hope this discussion will inspire both young creatives and industry professionals to challenge the status quo and reimagine their participation in the fashion system.

Tickets are $20 and include drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and opportunities for insightful conversations and new connections.
