On Wednesday, October 8th our Founder and CEO, Janet Goldman, was invited to visit the White House to join Michelle Obama for a Celebration of Design. She was among some of the most esteemed designers in the fashion and jewelry industry, including Diane von Furstenberg, Carolina Herrera, Kara Ross, Alexis Bittar, Cathy Waterman, and many more. The White House is truly spectacular and the event was a once in a lifetime experience. Here are some of our memories from the this incredibly special night!
Michelle Obama was so warm, friendly and welcoming. She personally greeted all guests with a special receiving line. When it was Janet’s turn, Michelle greeted her with open arms and kissed her twice. She made us feel at home in this truly exquisite place, the White House.
Of course, Diane von Furstenberg was in attendance. She is the most charming and friendly woman, getting in line with everyone and warmly greeting those around her. She is truly a top class act and was a treat to meet.
Janet was so excited to rekindle with an old friend, Carolina Herrera.
