Armstrong operates her own women's clothing line, The Mudroom Closet. Last year, she received the Savannah College of Art and Design's Sirlin Award for most outstanding women's wear collection, the release states.
Bangser, a Westport native, is an industrial designer, toy developer and sculptor. He works as an industrial designer at Product Ventures, a Fairfield brand strategy and design consultancy that designs products and packaging for household brands.
Networking and light refreshments will follow the talk, which is free and open to the public.
