Recently I was introduced to a group called Fashion Fight Cancer. I'm not exactly sure how they came across my contact info, but was so glad they reached out. You can check out some of their other events or upcoming ones HERE!
There was a workshop starting a few weeks ago with Lydell NYC. I think in my mind when they said they would be hosting a bracelet workshop I pictured a pattern already set out for us with a bunch of beads we could pick. You know, follow the instructions, put your favorite colors and done! I didn't realize I'd have to really get creative! I love the idea of bringing together folks, with a common bond of cancer, but never really talking about it. Just doing something distracting and interesting.
This workshop is a 4 or 5 part one. The first one was to take a look at the collections Lydell NYC had and get some inspiration. I can't thank them enough for opening up their place to host this event. Everyone was so incredibly nice and welcoming! Our second workshop was to put our design caps on and think about a charm that means something to us. Folks that know me, know that I'm not much of a fashionista. I'm a simple person. So we'll see how this turns out! I won't get give any spoilers until it's done! We'll head back in a few weeks again to start bringing our designs to life!
You can see below on what FFC does. And if you're a fellow cancer patient or survivor, check out their upcoming events!
