The panel conversation highlighted very different paths to success from successful women in the design field. We engaged an insightful and in-depth conversation. Amy Lau graced us with tales from her curatorial adventures, Cristina Grajales highlighted how her innovative gallery really champions designers, Monica Khemsurov shared some struggles of being a design writer and how starting a design fair, while unintended, has been a great platform for supporting international design while our own Lora Appleton moderated and shared many of her own anecdotes and leading by example. Christine Gachot of Gachot Studios was there in spirit, and we look forward to continuing to shine light on other female pillars of design.
