After a two-month break, the DC Apartment Therapy Meetup is back in action! Join fellow Apartment Therapy readers on the evening of March 28th for a Spring Happy Hour. Stop by to celebrate the season, see old friends, and make new acquaintances.
The group's previous meetup featured award-winning designer Supon Phornirunlit. Before a crowd of over 50 guests, Supon discussed his background, past projects, and lessons learned throughout his career. Supon's witty presentation, entitled "Once Supon A Time", was chock full of anecdotes including stories of the tiny one-bedroom apartment where it all started as well as an inspiring account of his first big break - providing graphics for the FIFA World Cup. Supon encouraged listeners to take risks, trust their abilities, be open to inspiration and remember his motto, "Creativity is like beauty: If you weren't born with it, you'll have to pay for it." After a 30-minute presentation, the designer took questions from the audience and gave away products from his home decor collection, Naked Decor. Throughout the event, guests enjoyed munchies by local salad guru Willie Shubert and desserts provided by Sarah Steel of Urban Referrals, a web-based service for contractor referrals. Event co-planners Maizie Clarke and Rosyln Ashford also contributed toward a fantastic evening by welcoming guests and providing festive party decor.
