Vogue + Levi’s Celebration of International Women’s Day

by jessconatser on March 10, 2011

Tuesday night, I had the lovely pleasure of celebrating International Women’s Day with top of the tier style mavens, Vogue and Levi’s, in the Library at the Soho House located in the meat packing district of New York City.

International Women’s Day has been observed since the early 1900s, a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies. Today, women all over the world are continuing to make a profound difference. We celebrate these accomplishments by spreading the word that provides inspiration and hope for all!

Levi’s Shape What’s to Come campaign does just that. A screening of Chiara Clemente’s documentary short Shape What’s to Come for Levi’s (embedded above) took place at the event and showcased some of the young talented women of today’s amazing accomplishments.

Luckily enough, I got a word in with the film maker herself! When asked what the 3 most influential lessons learned while creating Shape What’s to Come short film, Chiara Clemente said, “You can never be to young to accomplish great things, you must be patient and take one moment at a time when accomplishing your goals and all around the world, extraordinary women are accomplishing great things and it’s truly amazing!”

I felt honored to be a part of such an amazing ongoing movement in time. The event was heartfelt and the inspiration was endless – just maybe, one day we’ll make a difference too.

Wow, this is so positive, inspiring and uplifting! I can’t believe that woman is rowing across the Atlantic Ocean! And I love what the one said about taking a step back so the developing world can take a step forward. The best thing about these women is their humility. They know they are getting as much if not more than the people they are setting out to help. Thank you for sharing this; it is a call to action.
