Blender x Nick Graham

Blender Workspace, a premium shared office community, welcomed fashion iconoclast and Joe Boxer founder, Nick Graham, to their New York flagship on February 20th. The two-hour presentation and roundtable discussion signified the launch of Blender’s new Entrepreneur Salon Series: the latest addition to a robust programming initiative available to all Blender members.

 

Mr. Graham’s presentation focused on themes of audacity and enterprise, informed by his personal experience with innovative brand building. He famously got his start by silk screening dollar bills onto boxer shorts, while his latest collection debuted earlier this month in the shark tank at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. Mr. Graham also launched an eponymous men’s fashion line at New York Fashion Week in January.

 

The event was hosted by Larry Dvoskin, a music entrepreneur who has worked with past Grammy winners including David Bowie, The Beach Boys, Robert Plant, and MGMT. In addition to its salon series, Blender boasts a curated arts program, wellness meet-ups, workshops, and live performances on a daily basis.

 

Blender is a leading luxury workspace located at 135 Madison Avenue in the NoMad neighborhood of New York City. The space was custom built for high-caliber professionals who value thoughtful design and an elevated work experience, and has evolved into a hub for creative, lifestyle and wellness brands.
