Together We Bloom: Femme Fair 2018!

June 1, 2018

Hey, remember me? Popping in to say hello and what a year it has been. In April, I had the privilege of participating in the second annual Femme Fair.  One part community event, one part fancy garage sale, all parts female empowerment movement – Femme Fair was a sight to behold. From intellectual talks and panels, to immersive photo experiences, to shopping galore, Femme Fair brought over 200 Bay Area women together to connect and build relationships.

Check out the stunning photos that Jess Onesto captured during the day!
I had the honor of sharing my booth space with Karine Hsu, the founder of the up-and-coming brand, And Comfort. Her gorgeous, minimal pieces were the perfect counterpoint to my brightly colored wardrobe! It was an exciting day for both of us. Karine ended up selling several pieces from her yet-to-be-released capsule collection, and I made a bunch of sales and met so many new friends.

Thank you to everyone below – our wonderful founders, sponsors, speakers, and more for creating such a magical event!

So thankful to Peerspace for allowing us to use such a gorgeous venue! They believe amazing things happen when people meet, create, and celebrate in the company of others, and that planning these gatherings – starting with finding the perfect space – should be simple. Femme Fair was this and much more, and for that we have Peerspace to thank.
