Last Wednesday at The Aviary, we ended off our last #LocalTalks of the season with a bang. The hot topic of the event was: Clothing. Conscious Consumption. Alexa Mazzarello of BodyThoughts moderated this talk with an all-star panel consisting of Chloe Popove of My Modern Closet, Elim Chu, stylist and brand consultant, Armin Tehrani of Priory, Dave Watkins of Friends Made, and Nicolle Hodges, TV host, producer, freelancer, and journalist.

The room buzzed with excitement as the seats filled with people enthusiastic to learn. We talked about all things eco-fashion such as, the adverse effects of fast fashion, how wearing the same thing twice should be cool, and how we should start shopping for clothing like how some buy food, local.


Following the talk was a mini reception by BodyThoughts. The beautiful story behind it is to “challenge the way people experience the world through their bodies.” The reception showcased stunning, raw, and unedited self-portraits of Alexa that truly embodied what BodyThoughts is all about.

Thank you to not only everyone who joined us for our last Local Talk of the season, but also to those who have attended all of our previous talks as well! Be sure to stay tuned to our social media for a whole new line up this fall!
