Next week, you can attend a three-day series of seminars dubbed The Basics, which will focus on different aspects of District fashion and show newcomers how to break into the bubble. Panelists include Katerina Herodotou of Meeps and Treasury and Kate Warren of Go Kate Shoot. Topics range from building your brand to making a profit. The series ends with a pop-up shop that will showcase local clothing and accessory designers, vintage boutiques, and artists. For $7 per seminar, it's a steal — and why settle for being a bystander when you can be part of the game?
