The “Launch Your Line” Workshop Series kicks off Saturday, May 23rd from 10:00am-12:00pm with the “Launch Your Handcrafted Shoe & Bag Line” workshop. Evans will discuss her partner factory in Senegal, Africa and explain how original designs are developed and produced in small volumes by hand in order to preserve local craftsmanship.

Afterwards, guests will be invited to shop Schwartz’ collection at a special pop-up shop that will be opened to the public from 12:00-5:00pm and again on Sunday, May 24th from 12:00-5:00pm.
