Fashioning The Future Of Urban Living

The Scoop

125+ people gathered together last month at The Wheelhouse downtown Los Angeles to exchange ideas, see what's coming from Untucked, and learn about the future of urban living from a panel of changemakers beautifying Los Angeles. We bantered about everything from biking-to-work to mobile offices.

To wrap up the night, NPR Spotlight singer/songwriter, Irene Diaz mesmerized the room with her powerful voice.

Untucked Highlights

As a new designer of women's workwear, crafting clothing for the professional women on the go, I'm passionate about research. Being at the pulse of the action of my customers helps me better understand how to design for their needs and lifestyles.

This event captured exactly that pulse.

That night, I featured an Untucked Wall to showcase my prototype and upcoming pieces in the making with an open invitation to hear feedback on the designs and what women want in their workwear.

The input was fantastic and I'm pumped to announce that pre-production has begun with one of the best pattern makers located right here in the heart of Los Angeles.
