Gurls Talk Premiere Event in Partnership w/ Coach & Dazed

While in recent months the times have been trying, sometimes it’s good to be reminded of all the positive and empowering vibes still around us. On July 1st, Gurls Talk will be hosting their first event with a day-long festival of female empowerment. Gurls Talk in partnership with New York fashion house Coach and supported by Dazed will kick off their free and open to the public event with a talk by activist and model Adwoa Aboah.

While you might recognise Adwoa for her accomplishments as a model, working with fashion powerhouses Versace, Alexander Wang and Kenzo to name a few; what you’ll no doubt grow to admire her for is her work as an activist and founder of Gurls Talk. As explained in the video below above (which is worth watching in full), Adwoa explains the reasons she founded Gurls Talk as the safe place she needed as a young woman but was not able to find.

 

“Having such a hard time when I was at school I think there should really be a space where girls can talk about these certain things that maybe people don’t see as so important like insecurities and boyfriends”

“At school, I didn’t have this place – I idolised people who had a life I thought I wanted”

A safe space to discuss ideas of sexuality, body image, mental heath and so much more – Gurls Talk is an unfiltered platform full of articles and stories which educate as much as they inspire and we can expect the very same from their event this Saturday.

Speakers confirmed so far include US Vogue contributor and relationship expert Karley Sciortino, activist, actress and model Hari Nef, intersex advocate and model Hanne Gaby Odiele, feminist columnist and author Laurie Penny, and Professor KM Abel. Alongside panel talks, there will be a programme of workshops including a movement workshop hosted by British choreographer Wayne

McGregor; a bonding and healing workshop hosted by Dr Lauren Hazzouri in addition to a Claire De Rouen library, a Coach Dream Station, a photo studio and much more.

The event is free and open to the public and of course, we wouldn’t miss it for the world and will be down there front centre of every talk, workshop and photo booth.
