Sister 2 Sister (2) Pics and Recap...

Our second Sister 2 Sister all-female sneaker design seminar just wrapped on Wednesday with an exclusive insiders' look at the Converse Headquarters. Over 20 female Converse staff showed us their roles in taking kicks from market research to material design, product development and onto our feet! Thanks Converse...


Over the weekend we had 20+ amazing participants and 9 mentor teachers working away at improving our skills drawing and designing sneakers...


Draw, draw, draw! Imani was one of 10 middle schoolers showing it's never too young to start becoming a sneaker designer!


This design team was challenged to come up with a new brand; here they're doing some market research and looking for inspiration...


As always, the weekend includes loads of one-on-one mentoring. Here Sabrina (left), from MassArt, gets tips from Layla Hassoun from Sperry Topsider.

Kathleen O'Donnell from RISD shows off her final design.

Many thanks to our fantastic mentor teachers, hard-working participants, and generous sponsors: Abekam, Karmaloop, No. 2 Foundation and Pensole!

Thanks also to our fabulous hosts, MassArt, for having us back again!

And last but not least, thanks to our photographers, Natanya Khashan and Felicia Eason.
