When we head to New York, we hit the ground running! For this adventure, Kendra spoke at the WWD CEO Summit and hosted Fashion for Breakfast’s Night Out together with Who What Wear. It was a whirlwind couple of days. Read on to catch up!
WWD CEO SUMMIT
Kendra took the stage with New York’s most fashionable at the WWD CEO Summit. Joined by icons like Tommy Hilfiger, Karl Lagerfeld, and Pete Nordstrom, the two-day conversation was centered around how to create and renew a complex industry full of change.
Kendra’s topic of choice? Building a billion-dollar brand on core values. “Why do we as a company put Family first? Because I did it. I was a mom who brought my little son to work – some days I needed that. We are an office filled with Superwomen. Mothers can juggle a million things at once and get them all done. And as a business, if you give them the respect, love, and care they deserve, they’ll do anything for you.”
FASHION FOR BREAKFAST NIGHT OUT with WHO WHAT WEAR
After a quick outfit change, we teamed up with Who What Wear to host an intimate dinner at Cecconi’s in Brooklyn. Psst…Did you know? The carousel next door made an appearance in our Winter campaign photo shoot!
Guests were invited to try on our favorite Winter jewels, and even got a sneak peek at the new additions to our Home Collection! Over dinner, Kendra shared her story of how the brand came to life, along with all of the highs and lows along the way.
Jennifer Pauline from the Soho House, a members-only club for people in creative industries, is also the resident moderator and curator of Fashion for Breakfast. We loved collaborating with her to host such a fabulous event!
It was a magical night, where the lights surrounding the Brooklyn Bridge sparkled just as much as the jewelry.
Until next time, New York!
