Piers Fawkes: The Future of Retail

WHAT
Wanna see the future? This guy’s got you covered. Piers Fawkes of PSFK is an expert trend predictor and a leader in retail strategy. He’ll use Wildfang’s rad new Westside space as a canvas to explore fashion and retail as he presents PSFK’s insights on designing the new shopper experience in 2016. He’s taking questions after, but don’t ask about the future of your love life. That’s not his thing.

WHERE
Wildfang West
404 SW 10th Ave.

WHEN
Thursday, April 21
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM

P.S.
Breakside is bringing the brews, Boke Bowl is bringing the dim sum, and Wildfang is bringing the tomboy fort vibes. In other words, it’s gonna be a good night.
