Upcoming Events

17 April 2014: April Monthly Meeting

For the April Monthly Meeting, the IWF will be holding a swish/swap clothes exchange.

The event will take place this Thursday, April 17th in the Palazzina of Centro delle Donne, with social greetings and set-up beginning at 7:15pm. At 8pm, the IWF will welcome Silvia Gaiani, academic and bag designer, who will speak briefly about the story behind her grandfather's fabrics, her Italian handmade bags and her upcoming book on eco-fashion. Immediately following the talk, browsing and swapping of clothing will begin.  All leftover articles will be donated to the Associazione Orlando charity.
