For anyone trying to bring their unique designs beyond an Etsy store and out into the wide world of NYC fashion, Work It Brooklyn is giving you a prime opportunity. Wednesday night, May 12, in Williamsburg, the event-based networking group is bringing together three big names from NY fashion to talk about starting out, and making it, in the fashion industry.
The panelists, all self-starters themselves, will be Bob Bland, founder of Brooklyn Royalty; Toni Hacker, owner of Hayden-Harnett; and Elaine La Personerie, founder of Wink PR. They’ll also be on-hand for some Q&A and a cocktail hour. Attendees are encouraged to bring business cards and profiles of their work. The 6:45 event’s being held at Kingdom, Bob Bland’s just-opened bar/boutique gallery at 170 N. 4th St., between Bedford and Driggs. The night’s free, but it’s limited to 45 people and reservations are required.
