To celebrate its first anniversary, Pratt Institute’s Brooklyn Fashion + Design Accelerator is hosting its inaugural Positive Impact Awards. The November 16 event, which is free and open to the public, promises to be a blast. In addition to honoring 15 individuals who have helped advance sustainability in the fashion industry—full disclosure: your author is among them—revelers will be able to partake of the Venture Fellow’s open studios while enjoying special “Positive Impact” cocktails and locally produced treats. To sweeten the occasion, the BF+DA is giving away a limited-edition alpaca-and-merino-wool scarf, to be created on-site by executive director Debera Johnson, Venture Fellow Mandy Kordal, and knitwear director Kelly Puertas on one of its state-of-the-art knitting machines. What better way to support #MaketheFutureHere? Enter now to win, and don’t forget to RSVP if you’re in the neighborhood!
