Project Ethos

ESTABLISHED 2005

Project Ethos was Heidi’s first “grown-up” business (though she technically founded a handful of others dating back to the time she was 11 years old).  What started as a fashion, music, and art event for herself and her creative friends with a unique crowdfunded method, later grew to a larger establishment. Over the course of three years, Heidi grew the bi-annual show to a 2,500 person, celebrity-attended, red carpet event where the likes of Colbie Callait, OneRepublic, and Andy Grammar graced the stages. The show was heavily fashion-focused and later showed brands like Nicole Miller, Hale Bob, and Frederick’s of Hollywood.

She left the company to my partner in 2008. The show continued to run until 2015.
During her tenure at Project Ethos, she devised the show format, theatrical openings, thematic decor, event graphics and managed over 35 young independent contractors from age 20-23.
