Annual BRAG Gala

By Amber Monaé

This year I attended one of my favorite galas of the season, BRAG (Black Retail Action Group). With a new location and an earlier date I knew this was going to be a different kind of night.  The gala is a scholarship and awards ceremony mixed with some dancing and networking. Just by the invitation (Glimpse The Future) I knew there was a lot to be in store by the honorees alone. Take a look.

Now Brag has been around forever as I am sure you have read in my other posts about the gala. I love going to this one in particular because it is an organization I believe in and partook in as both an intern and now mentor. I highly suggest anyone getting into the business side of the fashion/retail industry to look into and support this organization.

The night was closed out with soulful sounds by band, Honey & Vinyl!
