A month has passed and I am still on a high from this amazing GMC powered experience.  The 2nd Annual Posh and Popular Fashion and Beauty Summit was nothing short of amazing. Never in my wildest dreams did I think this one idea, this little vision, would impact the lives of so many remarkable women.  This year we hosted the 2nd Annual Posh and Popular Fashion and Beauty Summit at the fabulous, Greektown Casino Hotel’s Ballroom, in the heart of Downtown Detroit! The first summit of its kind, in Detroit, MI, provides lovers of the fashion and beauty industry the tools they need to grow a flourishing brand, learn from some of the best names in the industry, and connect with others who share the same love for such an amazing and ever evolving industry. GMC helped to take this amazing summit to the next level by Powering the event, and I am so honored to have had the participation of such a multifaceted car brand. The mission to empower, enlighten, and excite every woman in attendance, was accomplished!

Our Mistress of Ceremonies, Jessica Lundy, Television Personality and Detroit TV20 host, did a fantastic job of keeping our attendees engaged throughout the day! She was certainly born to host, because her skill showed throughout the day! We even had a resident DJ! The one and only DJ Rue kept the sounds going and the energy high the entire day!

We had over 25 vendors apart of our Posh Pop-Up Experience and a stylish glam suite for our attendees to get pampered and relax in between sessions! I am still upset I didn’t get to shop with each one, nor did I get my message with the staff from Bee’s Beauty Bar…. I promise, next year, I am going to enjoy more of the fun stuff!

Our attendees also experienced two powerful keynote addresses, from two passionate and high powered women in the fashion and beauty industry, Ronne Brown and Nichole Lynel.

Ronne started the morning off with our signature ‘Beauty from the Inside Out’ keynote address. I believe it’s not enough to just be a great business woman, it’s also extremely important to be a woman of integrity, good character, and substance. Ronne did a phenomenal job of sharing her journey and important life lessons each lady could easily apply in their own lives.

Nichole Lynel also brought a fun and energetic presence to our main stage. Walking out to Beyoncé’s ‘Shining’, she ended our day with great energy and a powerful story of what pursuing purpose truly looks like. Both ladies touched each and every woman in attendance, including me!
