Although we are all physically distancing, multimedia platform EveryStylishGirl made women feel socially connected with their digital Sip N’ Slay: Building A Better Brand conference. Empowered by Bumble Bizz, the event brought curators and tastemakers in the fashion and beauty industry together for a day filled with insightful conversations about branding and building.
Hosted by The Cut’s Social Editor and EveryStylishGirl’s CEO and founder, Nana Agyemang, the digital experience began with a guided meditation followed by an intimate discussion with Agyemang for VIP ticket holders. Nana dropped major gems during her segment of the conference as she discussed how she strategically increased The Cut’s Instagram page to reach 1 million followers. Following Nana’s segment, Vogue Associate Market Editor, Naomi Elizee, The Zoe Report Senior Fashion Editor, Mecca Williams, Refinery29 Social Strategy Lead, Laurise McMIlliam, Style and Beauty Blogger, Kia Marie, Bravo and E! Director of Entertainment Communications and CultureCon and The Creative Collective NYC Founder, Imani Ellise and MEFeater CEO, Gabrielle Amani shared tips on how to have a successful journalism career in the fashion industry, pitching and negotiating with brands and launching a successful media company. In between each segment, the attendees were able to enjoy music by DJ and Creative, Soléne OJ and connect with one another in quick video chats that were designed like speed dates.
Founded in July 2016, EveryStylishGirl’s mission was to highlight women in media who are often ignored by mainstream fashion media’s. Since its launch ESG has developed a one-stop shop for all things fashion, beauty and culture. The platform provides young women with the skills and access to obtain jobs in fashion, beauty and media through events like their Sip N’ Slay brunch, meet and greets and a girl boss internship program. ESG continues to prove that they are the table by giving several women seats to further their career goals in media.
