"Pattern Indy" 2 Day Workshop February 2014

Here are the highlights of my visit and great things you should know about this midwestern city. PATTERN is a high energy group of professionals in the fashion industry who love Indianapolis and want to keep the creative spirit alive by sharing, socializing, and inspiring. Hopefully I was a part of this energy for two days!

My trend presentation on Womens Trend for Spring 2015 was held at SOCIETY OF SALVAGE, a huge place filled with estate finds--a wealth of used items for indoors/outdoors/display waiting to find their way into your home/business. Very cool. Great diverse audience from architects to designers, students, merchants.

CONSULTATIONS

As part of my consulting services, I worked individually with six businesses, all very eager to take their creative endeavors to the next step. Again, I met with a diverse range of entrepreneurship, from high end leather making, jewelry, accessory and specialty item design, to boutiques with their own personality and small cottage industries both online and bricks/mortar. What they all needed was an outside eye to answer their questions, make recommendations on how to create more visual appeal, and provide ideas on how to better reach their customer. I believe I was able to do that in a short 45-min meeting and look forward to working with them again.

HOTEL

RESTAURANT

BLUEBEARD: Another cool place, simple and good, in Fountain Square. Lots of local and healthy things to try. They also have their own bakery and we had to stop by the next morning to get a freshly baked loaf of italian wheat bread! bluebeardindy.com
