Put on your thinking cap

This year’s headline designer is Natalia Fedner, who was born in Ukraine + immigrated to Columbus as a child. She’s since worked for some of the biggest names in Hollywood, including Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and Janet Jackson do we need to name more? Because we can.

On Thurs., Oct. 13, Natalia will share her story in a conversation that benefits her home country through the Ukrainian Cultural Association of Central Ohio. Entry fees, which are $25, will be donated to the non-profit.
