look at that captive audience [myself and the gorgeous ladies of the natural curiosities design department], up bright & early on a friday!
creative mornings, started by tina roth eisenberg in new york, has had a los angeles chapter that’s been active for about 3 years, and since then has grown so many chapters worldwide, i’ve lost count. i’ve been going off an on to the ones on the east side, and find they always have a new angle on some aspect of running a creative business that is inspiring. the person we are listening to in the photo above is stephen kenn talking about designing fashion and furniture inspired by reused fabrics he discovered in a downtown warehouse he found simply by wandering around. he and his wife also host the backdoor coffee club, which i dropped in on yesterday, and where i met some very interesting & creatively active people. i love all the avenues you can follow through the people you meet even in just the design industry.
this year, each monthly talk is on a theme. here are the first 2 of 2013, on money and happiness. watch & enjoy, and follow their twitter to find out when to rsvp.
