Women:Inspiration & Enterprise Symposium
We spent our Monday getting inspired at the WIE Inaugural Symposium in NYC. Donna Karan, Sarah Brown, and Arianna Huffington co-hosted the event to benefit the White Ribbon Alliance. The day's theme “Women Inspiring Women” worked with leaders in a variety of industries taking to the stage to share their thoughts and ideas. And after listening to the likes of Melinda Gates, Aerin Lauder, Diane von Furstenberg, Christy Turlington Burns, and Nora Ephron we have to admit we felt quite uplifted.
Later in the evening Karan took to the stage to present the White Ribbon Alliance Fashion Show; designers, includingone-of-a-kind white dresses to be auctioned off for the cause. Marchesa, Stella McCartney, Vera Wang, Chloe and Karan herself created. With the sun setting over the Manhattan skyline, Estelle sang her heart out. As the crowd created hearts with their hands and belted out “One Love” a slew of white balloons were released. And onward and upward they went!
