Simple Celebrating MAKERS Over Lunch in NYC
It’s not every day you’re surrounded by women who have truly made America.
When we first heard the stories of these amazing women, it just felt right for Simple to be a proud supporter of MAKERS. As a new line of facial skincare products in the U.S., we embrace the opportunity to engage with women and salute those whose authenticity and spirit have inspired us to make a positive impact on women’s lives.
Last week we found ourselves at Casa Lever restaurant in NYC, lunching with dozens of MAKERS, women who have gone against the mold, broken down barriers and whose stories have impacted and inspired us all.
We sat alongside movers and shakers including Gloria Steinem, Katie Couric, Gayle King, Arianna Huffington, Barbara Walters and Diane von Furstenberg – and that’s just to name a few.
As various MAKERS videos played on screen, you couldn’t help but feel the motivating energy in the room. Gloria Steinem, foremost leader of thewomen’s movement, took to the stage to introduce the MAKERS. Barbara Walters spoke of fond memories and the celebrated career of Nora Ephron, who had recently died. Other tributes focused on each woman’s unique philosophies and lessons learned.
It truly was an experience of a lifetime.
At Simple, we celebrate MAKERS. We can’t wait to share more of this journey with you. Stay tuned…
