Event Recap: Macy's "The Soul Era" with June Ambrose and Johnetta Boone


On Wednesday, I attended Macy's Black History Month, "The Sourl Era" panel discussion with designers June Ambrose and Johnetta Boone. The conversation centered around Soul Era style (the 70's, think Diana Ross)  and its influences on fashion today.






Additionally June and Johnetta shared nuggets and insights they've learned from their paths and from working in the fashion industry: 

"Take your time to go through the entire process." Johnetta Boone

"Understand the value of your brand while you're building it." June Ambrose 






The ladies also spoke about the inspiration and drive behind their life's work. June Ambrose draws inspiration from her children and believes that they shaped her into a more creative person. Johnetta Boone enjoys living her passion and giving back to the community that gave so much to her.


 June Ambrose's winter white outfit was everything!

After the panel discussion, we listened (and some of us danced) to Soul Era Jams, savored hor'd ourves and wine and mingled.



We also got the opportunity to meet the talented, multifaceted and dynamic June Ambrose and Johnetta Boone. I was ecstatic!


Macy's will be hosting this panel discussion in multiple throughout the month of February, see this post for details!!!!
