Description

The first of a series of Daily Goods Design LABS

POP-UP 1 features women that are changing the landscape of design through creative uses of materials and technology. The presentation will focus on how to design for the other ½ of consumers — yes, design for women.

Female designers, fashionistas, and technology experts come together to imagine, make, and create the future of clothing, accessories, and product concepts for women.

The event includes a 20-minute talk by Daily Goods Design LABS Founder Renn Scott, followed by four 15-minute talks from 4 women focusing in the areas of design, making, and innovation in engineering and technology.

Event will wrap-up with a meet-and-greet where the presenters, female designers and engineers, are present for conversations to discuss their work.
