It had been years since I had been to Las Vegas. I don't care for it much. But when I was invited to attend the Stitch Factory Speaker Series event last week for Fashion Utah, I couldn't say no. Jet, Aubry, Sarah, and I made it a road trip and headed to Nevada. We ended up being in Downtown Las Vegas, which is, in my opinion, so much cooler than the strip. The Downtown Project is doing so much to improve downtown, to bring it back to life. They have purchased any and every vacant lot and building they could. They're building a school, there are places for artists and designers to work, a new park made out of containers, and local restaurants that were filled with charm, amazing food, and even more amazing people. Please go visit Downtown Las Vegas if you get the chance.
