Over the years, this event has evolved into a gathering of the city’s most influential thought leaders from the corporate, nonprofit, and philanthropic community. Attended by over 350 participants, this seminal event attracts representatives from fashion, finance, media, and the arts. In addition to honoring a globally recognized female leader, we will also celebrate the accomplishments of Girls Inc. of New York City members.
2018 Strong Smart & Bold Honoree
Michelle Smith, Co-Founder and Creative Director, MILLY*
Michelle is being honored for her remarkable dedication to helping vulnerable girls overcome barriers to breaking the cycle of poverty. Her personal commitment of time and financial support has resulted in exciting mentoring experiences that have educated and inspired girls to pursue their dreams.
2018 STRONG SMART BOLD HONOREE
Michelle’s extraordinary talent as a designer was recently enshrined in history when Former First Lady Michelle Obama wore Michelle Smith's custom-designed gown for the painting of her official portrait, which now hangs in the Smithsonian Institute.
*The Milly Collection, co-founded and designed by Michelle Smith, defines young luxury.
Smith’s signature design technique merges classic American sportswear silhouettes with French atelier style. Influenced by her Parisian training at Christian Dior Haute Couture, Louis Vuitton and Hermès, Smith’s eye for impeccable detail, use of luxurious cutting-edge European fabrics and custom-made prints have made MILLY a cult favorite across the globe.
Girls Inc. of New York City is grateful for the generous support of our event sponsors!
