APW Happy Hour

We threw a feminist summer camp!

Hey APW,

As most of you know, our team spent a portion of last week and all of last weekend in the redwoods with a hundred feminist women at our first-ever Compact Summer Camp. It was amazing, and we are exhausted. We can’t wait to give you a full rundown of what happened, what we learned, and what’s coming next. But for now our team is mostly taking the week off to sleep, relax, and spend time with family. So till then, come hang with us on Instagram as we slowly share amazing photos and stories from camp.

Next week we’re going to be back in the office and full steam ahead on our plus size wedding dress launch with Lace And Liberty. We’ll be launching that collection in early October, and we cannot wait to share much more with you in the coming weeks. Spending a weekend with amazing women and non-binary folks of every single body type only cemented our commitment to making all women and femmes feel stunning just the way they are. (Because y’all are seriously gorgeous, inside and out, and you deserve to feel that way every damn day, and most especially on your wedding day.)

Till then, we bring you your open thread.

With love, gratitude… and naps.
