Out and About: Tantalised in the company of Tifiti

Women Empowerment was the theme as the Danish fashion brand Tifiti hosted a networking event for international business women at 1508.dk’s office in Wilders Plads in Christianshavn on May 10.

On this occasion, Tifiti’s guests were invited to watch and contribute to a panel discussion on the subject of women in creative industries.

Moderated by Tifiti’s CEO and founder, Aleksandra Kiebdoj (bottom left), the three panelists were: Charlotte Mielko, the founder of MIELKO Jewellery, Frederikke Antoine Schmidt, the CEO and creative director of Roccamore, and Hjørdis Thorborg (bottom, second left), 1508.dk’s senior brand experience designer.

It was an opportunity to get involved and learn about the link between creativity and business, and what a crucial role creativity plays.

After so much fun, it would have been rude to send the guests away empty-handed, or at least all of them.

A raffle ensued (top right) and 28 departed with a special gift from GOODIEBOX that clearly made some of the guests dance with joy.

A new analysis from the Workers’ Union’s Business Council suggests that internationals rarely join trade unions – but if they did, it would generate better industry standards.
