Rebecca Minkoff hosted an event where she chatted with Christene Barberich, the co-founder of Refinery29, about the trials and successes of starting a company. The discussion was held at the Rebecca Minkoff store in Soho, and Lisa and Hedy, the PR intern, were lucky enough to attend on behalf of MSC!
Hedy is our Public Relations Intern, so she deals with a lot of our social media, press contacts, and writing (from emails to blog posts—there’s a good chance she is writing this right now!) She is a senior at The King’s College in NYC, and she is studying Media, Culture, and Art. Here’s a bit more about her!
My Social Canvas had the pleasure of visiting the GLAM Girls Club at a local school in Harlem this week. GLAM Girls is comprised of fifth grade girls, and GLAM stands for Girls Learning to Achieve More. We have previously visited the GLAM Girls club to tell them about our mission and connect with the members. MSC was so excited to be able to visit the girls again, this time for their t-shirt design competition!
My Social Canvas partnered with Italian fashion brand Furla to celebrate Earth Day 2017! Furla not only creates beautiful handbags and accessories, but The Fondazione Furla, started by Furla’s President Giovanna Furlanetto, supports emerging artists and designers and helps foster their growth and success. My Social Canvas and Furla connected over our shared commitment to aid young designers and artists and help them achieve their dreams!
We recently sat down with Juliette, one of our amazing campus reps. Juliette got involved in MSC back in in 2014 and she has been helping us inspire girls to design the life and career they love ever since. We would love for you to get to know her! Hear how she is designing the life and career she loves in both school and life.
“This year, one of our orders with a retailer was shipped to our warehouse with incorrect barcodes. We caught the issue and decided to pull together a team overnight to fix the issue. Our team was upbeat and positive during the process. As I sat on that warehouse floor and attached tags to 2,000 bags, I was reminded that fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg (DVF) had been in my place before.” - Keep reading to hear Lisa’s story and why she thinks it’s never time to quit!
