In August's edition of "Made in Atlanta", the monthly speaking event series held at Switchyards Downtown Club in Atlanta, guests welcomed fashion designers and entrepreneurs Sid and Ann Mashburn. The couple started their individual careers, his as a designer for brands like J.Crew and Ralph Lauren and hers as an editor at Conde Nast, in New York City. While successful, their entrepreneurial spirits still had them longing to create an atmosphere that acted as an experience for their customers, not just a place to buy clothes.
The couple took us through their journey to success, all while laughing and cracking jokes with the audience and each other.
“Made in Atlanta” is a monthly series of speaking events sponsored by us along with SDC where entrepreneurs and up-and-coming startups can hear the brand journeys of bigger, Atlanta-based brands. Each event’s attendants receive a unique Alternative t-shirt, designed specifically for each event.
