The event was a discussion on design between jeff and fellow creative individuals seeking advice on how to make it in the fashion industry of today. Speaking to a crowd of predominantly young, aspiring brand owners, jeffstaple stressed the take-home message that, “Impossible is Temporary,” – a lesson learned in his experience as a young person overcoming obstacles in becoming an entrepreneur, and building the Staple brand from the ground up against all odds. Over 175 people were in attendance for the talk, and 10 eager aspiring entrepreneurs enlisted in a private portfolio review afterwards that ended up going into overtime, with the workshop spilling out into the High Museum’s courtyard until midnight. "It took me 10 years to figure out these mistakes that I've made, why should I make the next kid go through 10 years of mistakes too? Why can't I tell him like, yo do it this way... And shave off 9 years of his mistake making, so that he can make other mistakes and learn that much better." -jeffstaple
