SWEATS & BALANCES ROOFTOP SUMMER SERIES + SUSTAINABLE FASHION PANEL

SWEATS & BALANCES ROOFTOP SUMMER SERIES + SUSTAINABLE FASHION PANEL

Kara Liotta, VP of Talent & Innovation + Master Instructor at Flywheel Sports will lead us in a 45-minute total body FlyBarre workout using resistance bands. (Think fast-paced high-energy head-to-toe workout that creates a lean sculpted body and a strong core.)

After we’ve pulsed and sweat it out, we’ll host a panel discussing The Power Of Sustainable Fashion.

We’ll chat all about how to take ownership over your style, which can help your mental health, career, finances, and the environment. We’ll also provide super easy steps to broaden your impact beyond your own closet.

Panelists Include: Merri Smith and Violet Gross, Co-Founders of Tulerie and Alden Wicker, a freelance journalist and fashion sustainability expert.

You’ll get a chance to network with the S&B ladies, enjoy treats and drinks from our partners and soak in some rooftop views!

Tulerie

Tulerie connects fashion-forward women to monetize the billions of dollars of inventory hanging in women’s closets around the US, keeping clothing in use longer and out of landfills. When considering the number of times the founders borrowed from their friends — asking for yet another fashion favor coupled with the guilt of only wearing something once, they knew there had to be a better way to share clothing.

Alden Wicker

Alden is a freelance journalist who writes deeply researched articles about the big ideas in the sustainable fashion industry. She splits her time between her website EcoCult.com, and contributing freelance articles to publications like Glamour, Quartz, Newsweek, Fast Company, Vox, Inc. Magazine, and Refinery29.

She’s made expert appearances on the BBC, NPR, CBC, and MSNBC, and has been cited by Complex and Nylon as a leading voice in the movement. Her home base is in Brooklyn, but at the end of 2017, she and her husband, architect and DJ Illich Mujica, took 14 months to travel, work, and research around the world. To deepen her understanding of the global fashion supply chain, she visited artisan workshops in Latin America and India, dug into textile innovations in Europe, and finished up with some factory visits in Asia. With her viral articles on conscious consumption, Alden has become a leading proponent for not just focusing on (and obsessing over) your own environmental footprint, but thinking about how governments and systems affect how we consume and live.
