Gail Baugh, President

Happy new year, everyone. 2015 promises to be a growth year for your local trade association, PeopleWearSF. We are planning new activities, and look forward to your participation. PeoplewearSF is committed to supporting your business and providing opportunities for growth and further networking.

This year we are planning several membership events that will provide information for our members, particularly more established businesses. Our first event will be held on Wednesday, Feb. 4th, at 6-8 pm, at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising (FIDM) SF campus at 55 Stockton Street in Union Square.  The topic will be “The Law on the Runway: The Legal Issues of Online Marketing” led by  attorney Rachel Fischbein and brand marketing specialist Leslie Lum. This event is free to PeopleWearSF members, and non-members pay a $25 entry fee.

The PeopleWearSF board is working on local industry concerns, such as workforce training, introduction of industry innovations, and promoting local sewing manufacturing. We look forward to learn how you, our members, can contribute to these important concerns.

We want to hear about your business, accomplishments, and other ways that your company is succeeding, so we can showcase our members! Please read about our member Julie Arvan and her business Nesting Days. Think about your own successes and let us tell your story.

And finally, our annual report to the membership meeting will be held on Thursday, January 29th, 6-9 pm, at WestonWear headquarters, 2650 18th Street
San Francisco, CA 94110.  We look forward to your attending and learn how your trade association, PeopleWearSF, is supporting your business.
