Celebrating women!

Sunday, March 8th was International Women's Day so it was only fitting that I spent the afternoon at an event where the stars of the show were two start up's run by incredibly talented women - the women of Phiren and the women of Bfab.  I live in the Silicon Valley, the start up capital of the world.  And I just LOVE to show my support for up and coming brands.

PHIREN (pronounced \FEE-ren\) (www.phiren.com) delivers superior fitting designer apparel for women. The company founders wanted to do something really simple: create clothing that enabled as many women as possible to look and feel beautiful. 
They were frustrated by the lack of well-made, on-trend clothing that truly fit the bodies of modern American women. So, they worked meticulously to recalibrate the fit process currently used in the industry and have designed and manufactured a line of luxurious everyday essentials available in sizes 2-24.  
By designing in-house, bypassing traditional channels and engaging with their customers directly, they were able to offer expensive design, luxurious fabrics and couture-level embellishment at great value.
Most importantly they are  proud to be a startup for women by women.  Their mission: to enable as many women as possible to wear what they love and to use it to showcase their independence, uniqueness and intelligence.

Models Aashna wearing the Jane Tunic & Niki wears the Sophia Tunic. Both in a luxurious sponged silk.  I love the 3/4 diagonal sleeve design. So unique and flattering.

Our lovely hostess, Hillary Frank, wearing the Hillary tunic. Doesn't she look fab in it? I love it paired with white jeans,  the red embellishment just POPS.

Feel like being social with Phiren?

I do hope you enjoyed reading about how I spent a very important day for women. I couldn't have thought of a better way to spend it than with amazing, strong, intelligent and entrepreneurial women. I am so proud to be a woman!
