What She Said Panel Talks Fashion At W Miami

On Tuesday, January 31, 2017, W Miami continued the What She Said panel series with Miami style blogging pioneer, The Fashion Poet/Annie Vazquez; Style Mafia founder, Simonett Pereira; and KRELWear founder, Karelle Levy. The chat was moderated by Style Out of the City founder, Elysze Held.

A big focal point on this evening was creative inspiration. Karelle looks to the woman on the street. “(I’m inspired by) the everyday person,” she explained. “I make all of my fabrics from garments collected over the years. I create according to what can be worn all the time”

Simonett expressed how experiencing New York Fashion Week nudged her into creating Style Mafia: “Being backstage opened my eyes how easy it was to start a fashion project,” she said. Since launching the ready-to-wear label she’s been featured in a slew of publications and outlets–from Refinery29 to Ocean Drive. Simonette has also embraced the growing trend of collection presentations over runway shows.

What She Said’s speakers also discussed about how to survive in such a competitive market. Simonett stated, “You have to be progressive to stay alive in the fashion market.” Karelle from added, “I take something that is old and make it new.”

Miami’s Beauty Business Leaders Talk Branding, Trends, and More

Dozens of women took to the W Miami’s Whisper Lounge for the inaugural What She Said panel series on Tuesday, January 24, 2017.  Blogger Maria Tettamanti of The Wordy Girl moderated a discussion featuring Natalie Gee and Celene Gee of GEE Beauty, and Lisa Goldfaden of Goldfaden MD (daughter to renowned dermatologist, Gary Goldfaden, M.D.) The topic: “Clean beauty.”

The speakers emphasized that clean beauty is a lifestyle preference, one that understands what works best for each individual and that doesn’t take the beauty process too seriously. They added that “illuminating from within” is just as important as what is put on topically–from the food one eats to their daily routines.

During the open format portion, Brickell.com asked each panelist what advice they would give to young entrepreneurs. “Don’t take ‘no’ for an answer. Don’t be afraid of all the ‘no’s’ that people are going to say to you,” noted Natalie Gee. “Be true to yourself and set yourself apart.” Celene Gee added, “Consistency is key and most importantly, stay focused!”

Lisa Goldfaden advised to start from the beginning, to break at one’s strength, and to have a support system in place. “First, know your purpose in why you want to be an entrepreneur. Being an entrepreneur is not for everyone. Find one thing that you’re good at and excel in it. Don’t try to do too many things at once. Have a good support system for those bad days you’ll have.”

W Miami will continue the What She Said series on Tuesday, January with a fashion-themed gathering. Celebrated stylist and founder of Style Out of the City, Elysze Held will be in conversation with local style influencers: They include  Style Mafia founder, Simonett Pereira,  The Fashion Poet founder, Annie Vazquez, and KRELWear founder, Karelle Levy.
