What do you get when you combine Upstate New York in the summer + 8 beautiful girls, a styled dinner, and swimming holes? Pure magic. I recently organized a small gathering of women creatives for a few days in Woodstock, NY for some time away from the city to relax, eat well, and share inspiration and thoughts. A huge thank you for everyone who came and contributed to the energy and success of the weekend!
Simone is an artist working with textiles around the world and currently exploring traditional ceramic processes in Japan. Levina is a marketing strategist, a brilliant writer, and an amazing co-chef! I couldn't have made this dinner happen without her knife skills, great taste, and enthusiastic support. Basia is a wedding photographer and all-around amazing person from Long Island, NY. Aïssatou is a fashion designer currently working on a line of jumpsuits of the name Combine de Filles. Ren is a Brooklyn based food, lifestyle and travel photographer. Elissa is an artist currently exploring printmaking who recently reloacted to Chicago from Brooklyn. Look out for her forthcoming shop; her taste is impeccable. Steph is a heath and lifestyle coach who hosts incredible experiential dinners from her Gramercy Park home.
