Over the past year, we’ve been amazed at how many designers and entrepreneurs we’ve met who want to share their knowledge and the things they’ve learned over the years working in the fashion industry with others. These entrepreneurs have real-life experience and have learned lessons (both the easy and the hard way) about production, branding, resourcing, merchandising, opening a studio, etc and they want to share with others. The only problem is, they don't have a platform to do it.

Sharing our voice is one of the main reasons why we started Laptops & Smalltalk. We wanted to share our love of business and fashion with entrepreneurs in hopes that we could help them grow their businesses and live their passion.

We started Laptops & Smalltalk because we wanted to share our voice and now, we want to help YOU share yours!

If you are a designer, industry professional or fashion entrepreneur who wants to share your experience and your voice with the intention of educating, motivating and inspiring others, we welcome you to become an L&S Voices Contributor!
