On November 15th, we were proud to host the second installment of our community speaking series at Apolis: Community Centre located in Soho in the heart of Manhattan. The goal of our speaking series is to invite industry leaders to share their perspective on how their profession impacts & fosters community.
Our first live conversation at our newest retail space was focused on Innovation & Community. Our second event dealt with the topics of Creativity & Community. The event was moderated by Barney's NY Creative Ambassador Simon Doonan. The two panelists were the renowned New York sculptor Tom Sachs, & Kanye West's Creative Director Virgil Abloh. Simon Doonan sparked a 30-minute live discussion with insightful questions of his own and spontaneous questions from the audience and social media. The evening was concluded with a signing of Tom Sach's Tea Ceremony Manual. Special thanks to the 250+ guests that joined us, as well as Simon, Tom and Virgil for their valuable insights.
We hope you will join us for our next event at Apolis: Community Centre that we will announce soon. Contact our Retail Manager, Benny Quinonez, for a personal invite once details for our next event are finalized.
