I was lucky to be part of AdWeek’s recent panel with other women who are redefining the rules of leadership in their respective industries. Pooled from banking, advertising, media, e-commerce, fashion (that would be me) and professional sports, we sat down to talk taking risks with your professional life, defining your value, balancing your personal brand, management advice and more.

We’re celebrating our L.A. store opening in zen style. We’ve partnered with Y7 yoga to bring you a hip-hop, candlelit zen experience in our Melrose Avenue boutique.
Y7′s co-founder Sarah Levey (she founded the studio with her husband) has put a new spin on the sport (think more Jay-Z less meditation music) and from the look of things yogis are responding with enthusiasm.
