JLF: On The Scene, 43rd Annual BRAG Gala


Last week, I attended the 43rd Annual BRAG (Black Action Retail Group) Scholarship and Awards Dinner Gala and I had a fabulous time. This organization is such a wonderful cause, preparing and educating professionals, entrepreneurs and students of color for executive leadership in the retail, fashion and related industries. Every year, BRAG throws a gala to raise money for its summer internship program.

This year, BRAG honored Iman with the Legacy Award. Other honorees: Terry Lundgren, CEO of Macy’s Inc and Alain Lafontant, Vice President of Brand Development for Sean John. Here are some pics from the event and the attendees!

She’s wearing a Monqiue Lhuillier strapless mermaid gown and Miriam Haskell earrings. I’m wearing a Bebe gown that I chose from my closet last minute while getting dressed, a Khirma Eliazov clutch and a Holst + Lee statement necklace (c/o the Collective PR). 


First course at dinner!


Ran into the hilarious Nick Cannon, the special guest at the gala.
