VIVMagnificent Woman Shop For A Cause | Honors @KHanson_Jewelry & @melaniefiona

Last night VIV Mag held their passport to luxury series at Bally Flagship store on Madison Ave.  They honored singer Melanie Fiona and designer  Kristin Hanson with the VIVMagnificent Woman Humanitarian for their philanthropic endeavors.  Publisher Jocelyn Taylor was on hand to present the honorees with their awards.  This event was not only to honor these two women but to raise funds for Aksyon Haitian/American arts, fashion and design foundation. Guest were treated to cocktails sponsored by the new Courvoisier Rose’ and the night’s food was catered by Haitian cater Nadege Fleurimond,  of Fleurimond Catering, Inc.

VIVMag is a bi-monthly 100% digital interactive lifestyle/luxury magazine targeting women which offers insight, advice and authentic stories to inspire and motivate women in their quest for a balanced and healthy lifestyle.

PR Sidenote:  My little PR sidenote for this event is that next time Courvoisier should either do a darker shade of pink for their logo the step and repeat  or go with a black step and repeat banner. It was a little hard to see the logo.

Networking tip: Open bar events don’t drink too much. Events sponsored by magazines offers great opportunities to meet with editors, publishers, and photographers. Always bring enough business cards or if you are going the paperless route make sure your phone is well charged so you can exchange information that way.

Happy Flying,
