Ladies, Wine & Design, @ Dow Design, February 15th

9 months ago by

Dow Design have teamed up with Jessica Walsh to bring her initiative ‘Ladies, Wine & Design’ to Auckland.

Jessica Walsh started Ladies, Wine & Design in New York after doing a lot of thinking and reading on why there are so few female Creative Directors. She believes we can create change through mentorship and championing each others’ work. As a female led creative company in Auckland, Dow was inspired by Jessica’s global call for open conversations on design with a drop of wine. Auckland has more than its fair share of exceptionally creative women, and it is their hope to bring us all together at Ladies, Wine & Design.

Dow will be hosting their courtyard conversations bi-monthly at their design studio in Newton. Ladies working in any creative industry are invited to join Dow for wine, nibbles and casual conversation on a wide variety of topics related to creativity, business and life. It’s FREE, but reservations are first come, first served, and each event is limited to only 20 ladies, so if you’re a creative female and would like to attend please email.

The first conversation topic is Chit-Chats with Boss Babes on Wednesday 15th February, 2017. 6pm – 8pm.


Chit-Chats with Boss Babes
Inspired by #girlboss we have a series of short, focused conversations with a selection of leading boss (not to be confused with bossy) babes.

First speaker to be announced for this event is Michele Whitecliffe, President of Whitecliffe College of Arts and Design. More to come…
