On Tuesday night, Bloomingdale’s hosted a spring kick off with Ramy Brook Sharp, founder and creative director of Ramy Brook. In addition to greeting fans, Brook participated in a panel discussion with Erin Loos Cutraro, founder and CEO of She Should Run, a nonpartisan nonprofit organization promoting leadership and encouraging women to run for office. The duo discussed their passion for philanthropic work, and empowering women.
The talk was held in Sharp’s new shop-in-shop in the 59th street Bloomingdale’s in Manhattan. Both Sharp and Cutraro opened up about their personal experiences as women in the workforce, and how they want to shape the world for their daughters.
When asked about how she was empowered growing up, Sharp said that her parents were particularly encouraging to herself and her two sisters. “They always encouraged us to be whoever we wanted to be, and that we could do anything. We grew up with confidence that we could pursue whatever dream we had,” she said. “It’s a tough world out there and it’s really easy to fail. But when you have the support and love of your family, friends, you really feel like you can just bust through those walls and find a way to succeed.”
