Last week, we had the pleasure of hosting designer Chris Benz at our third New York City meetup. Benz told sixty-five of our readers about his career as a designer in New York — from applying to Parsons at the advice of Donna Karan, to launching and then closing his own line, to his current project, reviving the house of Bill Blass. (You can read the full recap here.)
We're excited to announce that our next speaker is Jenn Rogien, the costume designer behind HBO's influential series, "Girls," and Netflix's "Orange Is the New Black." Come hear Rogien speak about translating Brooklyn styles for the small screen, the challenges of dressing a fictional prison population, and what it's like to work with directors Lena Dunham and Jenji Kohan. She'll also tell us what it takes to make a career in costume design.
The talk will take place at Space 530 in Manhattan on Wednesday, June 10 at 6 p.m. Doors will open at 5:30. Tickets are $20 (to cover the cost of catering) and can be purchased here. There are only 65 seats available and every one of our meetups has sold out so far. Hope to see you there!
