#MAKEITHAPPEN

About Last Night: NYC

DEBUG: core/paragraph

We made #MAKEITHAPPEN happen, live. On Tuesday night, we invited some of our favorite movers and shakers in New York for a night of inspiring conversation at BG, Bergdorf Goodman's iconic restaurant—because this campaign is about more than just the powerhouse trailblazers we've been featuring every week here, it's about this community of women.

Thank you for Jodie Patterson, Quentin Jones and Marina Larroudé—and, of course, moderator Aya Kanai—for sharing your stories of the highs and lows, the sweat and tears, the sacrifices and risks of how you make it happen every day. Next stop: Dallas!

The dinner was inspired by the concept of the salon and the exchange of ideas and conversation that happens at these types of gatherings.

The setting: VB Boho Vine tabletop, of course! We also placed Polaroid cameras on every table for the guests and printed a custom #MAKEITHAPPEN quick-fire Q&A on the back of the menus.
