Few figures have done as much for American fashion — and the women who wear it — as Eileen Fisher, founder and chairman of the eponymous clothing company beloved for its elegant, minimalist garments that have simplified dressing for generations. Today, Fisher's designs are sold at 65 Eileen Fisher and two Green Eileen locations, as well as more than 300 department and speciality stores across North America. As an outstanding advocate for sustainable clothing development, we're pleased to announce that Fisher will be the guest of honor at our next New York City meetup just ahead of Earth Day.
On April 6, come hear Fisher speak about how she got her company off the ground, why her original mission — to offer clothes that work together to help women get dressed easily — is still her guiding principle today, and how her company is developing a 100 percent sustainable supply chain. Those in attendance can participate in a 30- to 45-minute Q&A with Fisher, as well as have the chance to network with Fashionista editors and fellow event-goers. There will be food and drinks (if you're over 21), and we hope you leave feeling informed and inspired.
The talk will take place at Space 530 in Manhattan on Wednesday, April 6, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tickets are $25 (to cover the cost of catering), and can be purchased here. There are only 50 seats available, so act fast! Hope to see you there.
