Aside from leading dat sneaker game, New Balance have been doing other great things lately. Their Walk Your Own Path campaign has seen local ladies who are killing it in their respective fields be profiled in a video series (e.g. Chela and Babes on Grill).
 
We're super excited to be presenting a creative conference in collaboration with New Balance on Saturday 29 June, where inspiring international and local female speakers will engage in a panel discussion about how they got to be so good at life. There hasn't been this much girl power since Spice World!
 
NYC illustrator/designer Sophia Chang will be joined by Sydney-based jewellery designer Elke Kramer (if her article on motherhood for our Peace Issue doesn't melt your stone cold heart then nothing will). If weeping over vintage Chanel combined with girls who are smart at business is relevant to your interests, you'll be happy to learn that fashion entrepreneur and founder of Claire Inc, Belinda Humphries, will also be dishing out some pearls of wisdom. Melbourne artist Miso, and LA-based DJ/producer Tokimonsta will top off this next-level line-up.
 
Held at The State Library of Victoria, the two-hour forum is FREE, so understandably spaces are very limited. (Because free stuff is the best stuff, let us also tell you that there will be goodie bags for guests with treats from Oyster, New Balance, Redken, Maybelline and more!).
 
 
But it ain't no conference without an after party... After the discussions, guests will have the opportunity to join the speakers and fellow attendees for a casual drink at No Vacancy Gallery, QV. Refreshments courtesy of Strongbow (delicious) and live music courtesy of LARRIE (fun) will be provided. This is an 18+ event,  and there is no RSVP required for the after party, so make sure you get there early as obviously the places are limited!
