All right, so where were we? Yes, right...so after Friday’s events, I knew that Saturday would have plenty in store and I was not mistaken. I started the afternoon off with a trunk show. The designers from the Emerge fashion show the night before gathered in the penthouse suite to provide an intimate showing of the pieces in their respective collections.
At the close of the showing, the event organizers and designers gathered towards the front of the room to formally introduce themselves, provide guests with a bit of background and describe the impact this weekend has had on them.
Following the trunk show we were led downstairs to a meeting room for a workshop entitled “Living your Life’s Purpose”. The speaker, author Brenda Hill discussed her own personal triumphs and professional successes and also led a discussion that focused on being “pregnant with a vision”, an abridged version of the title of one of her latest books, “Pregnant With a Vision of Life’s Purpose”. This session was definitely empowering and certainly one of my most favorite activities of the weekend. What’s not to love women who are out to help empower other women?
Later that evening we returned to the penthouse for one last hurrah. Bravo’s Bevy Smith made an appearance while the DJ spun some feel good tunes. Guests in celebratory moods danced and sipped on champagne.
Unfortunately, I wasn’t in attendance for the brunch on Sunday morning but I did catch a glimpse of the set up and it was absolutely beautiful. I’m sure all of those in attendance had a fabulous time. If you’re interested in Fashion and female empowerment, this is without a doubt an event you’ll want to check out when it rolls around again this time next year.
