Loved this ledger art skirt by @byellowtail from last night's #nativefashion show at @smithsoniannmai Scroll down my feed to see an example of the art from the exhibit they had at the museum last summer. Loved the art and thought it was a really nice interpretation of it for the skirt

Second night of inspiring/ mind blowing talks. Tonight author, Ian Baker, told his story around the 'idea' of Shangri-La (which was based in a not-so-mythical but very mystical part of Tibet) and his expeditions that explored the region attempting to find it. I've been thinking a lot about what really matters and this conversation around geographical places and conceptual places had me listening with my mouth hanging open (don't picture that). It's also timely as we think about the perfect place or utopia, especially in times of unrest and instability. His next trip- with @natgeo - will work around the topic that was discussed on last night's panel: learning from the indigenous people how their local ecosystem REALLY works in order to think about long-term sustainability. It's a busy week- more tomorrow night! PS could have cropped and made a better pic but this room is the ultimate in #librarygoalz 🤓

SO grateful to live in a city that offers the opportunity to hear important conversations with scholars and policy makers who help make where we live a better place. .

Last night's film and panel showed 3 students' journeys to a Cambodian factory where they spoke to the workers and got an insider view on the making of fast fashion. @remakeourworld made it happen and gave out these handy little cheat sheets and pins. I have a few extra, hit me up if you want to remember the ethics x style relationship .
