Hello, July!  BCG in The City: 18th “NYWIFT’s Designing Women Awards”

Hello, July! 
So, many exciting things happened in June and as we recap the month one of our most favorite events to cover was the NYWIFT’s Designing Women Awards at New York University School of Law.  The talented women who made an appearance looked stunning.  It was an honor to meet some of the most gifted and established hairstylists, makeup artists, costume designers, and actresses in the entertainment industry. We had the opportunity to chat with Stephanie Maslansky who is the head costume designer of "Jessica Jones.". She was passionate, vibrant, and humble. Have you seen Jessica Jones? The costumes are BAD ASS! 

The awards ceremony was beautiful and included many celebrity guests who presented awards to the honorees. Of course, Amy Schumer had us laughing hysterically and also touched us as she presented Kyra Panchenko (Trainwreck, Girl On The Train, Snatched).

Kyra; she had my back. Her words and her actions made me not only feel confident, but I felt beautiful in that movie, and I still looked like myself.
— Amy Schumer

The awards ceremony followed with a grand reception where we had the opportunity to drink some cocktails and mingle. We also had the privilege to chat with the charming and down to earth Rosario Dawson. While talking with Rosario about her decision to adopt, I could see how she lit up as she mentioned her twelve-year-old daughter. It was as if you were speaking to a friend whom you have not seen in a while; Rosario was so welcoming. 

Thank you to everyone at Designing Women Gala and special thanks to Cynthia Inacio for embracing The BCG Squad with open arms. 
Until next year, Cheers!
