The event, titled “Here For Dreams,” curated by the Modern Day Wife, was a day-long celebration of the power of women in fashion, beauty, lifestyle, and business, held at the stunning Godfrey Hotel Hollywood. The event kicked off in the outdoor courtyard with a VIP Pre Party, where guests had the opportunity to have their headshots taken, experience exclusive activations, and indulge in mini beauty touch-up treatments.
It was the perfect way to welcome the springtime, as it brought together intelligent, entrepreneurial women who were looking to expand their business ventures in various areas, including retail brands, fashion styling, health, and more. It was a true reflection of MDW’s ultimate goal of empowering and inspiring women to pursue their dreams.
The Godfrey Hotel Hollywood, located in the heart of Los Angeles’ iconic Hollywood enclave, just a block south of Sunset Boulevard, provided the perfect setting for the event. The highlight of the venue was the I|O Rooftop, which spans a vast area of 12,000 square feet and is the largest public rooftop venue in Hollywood.
The main event took place on the rooftop and featured several incredible Speaker Panels, a Fashion Show, Beauty Tutorial Corner, Exclusive Pop-up Shops, and over-the-top Instagrammable moments. The panels included intimate conversations with CEOs, Moms, Designers, Influencers, and Business Owners, providing real talk on what’s in store for women in 2023, how women can embrace and support each other, and valuable insights on beauty, career, and fashion. The discussions were aimed at helping women up their game professionally and personally, providing power couple tips, and sharing strategies on how to balance all aspects of womanhood. The event also provided ample networking opportunities, which were considered priceless by the attendees.
The fashion show was a highlight of the event, showcasing outstanding brands such as JVLAURNT, Veronica M, Fayah Athletics, Le Antoinette, Jill Yoga, RCA Public Label, Julianne Bartolotta, and Epiphany Boutique. The fashion panel was also a great addition including speakers like Kim O., Kendria Godair, Tahirah Goins-Nall, Veronica M, Mogul, Teresa Foss and moderated by Tricia Love Vargas. The power panel had a significant impact on the attendees, including prominent speakers, such as Zara Harutyunyan, Becca Brown, Angela Parretta, Jessica Hawley, Dr. Natalie Dereka, Christine Barker, Jennifer Koch, Annie Semenova and Irina Kapulkin moderated by Babble on Brooke and Raven Vermeil . The event also featured celebrity panelists, including Jenny Strebe, Keyma, Ines Tazi, Taylor Bisciotti, and Polly Brindle, who shared their insights and experiences with the audience.
This production was a powerful celebration of women, their achievements, and their potential. It brought together women from various fields, inspiring and empowering them to pursue their dreams, expand their businesses, and support each other. With engaging panel discussions, a spectacular fashion show, and exclusive pop-up shops, the event provided a unique platform for networking, learning, and celebrating the strength and diversity of women.
