Please join us in person at Impact HUB San Francisco for our latest “Stories & Beer Fireside Chat” on Wednesday, Feb. 19th at 6:30pm when TriplePundit's Founder, Nick Aster, will be chatting with Eve Blossom of Lulan Artisans and Paul Dilllinger from Levi Strauss about sustainability in fashion.
In this chat, we’ll explore sustainability trends in fashion throughout the lifecycle: from the cotton fields all the way to the landfill. Many organizations are trying to improve the sustainability of apparel. We’ll aim to ask and answer: how effective are their efforts for people and the planet?
SPECIAL BONUS: In addition to organic and interesting beer, we'll have Feel Good World's famous grilled cheese sandwiches available for snacking!
6:30 – 7:00 – beers, apps, and networking
7:00 – 8:00 – fireside chat and Q&A
About our guests
Paul Dillinger joined Levi Strauss & Co. as senior director of global design for Dockers brand in 2010. In this role, he has partnered with the company’s Social and Environmental Sustainability group to further develop methods for applied sustainability in both the supply chain and the design process for application across the entire enterprise.
Born in Tacoma, WA, Dillinger earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Fashion Design from Washington University in 1994. After graduation he moved to Milan as the first Fulbright Scholar in fashion design, researching the influence of emerging luxury markets on high fashion design directions and commercialization. Concurrent with this research, he earned a Master of Fine Arts from the Domus Academy in 1995.
Trained as a designer/architect with an astute eye for design, Eve discovered a passion for the hand-woven textiles of Southeast Asia while spending two years restoring French villas in Vietnam. During her travels throughout the region, she met master weavers, learned their stories and was moved by their remarkable talents and spirit. Blossom seeks to empower these artisans through creating a viable economic engine that celebrates their spirit, talents and traditions – giving them a stable foundation for their future. Lulan Artisans integrates Blossom’s design sensibilities with her commitment to create social change.
Triple Pundit is an innovative new-media company for the business community that cultivates awareness
