Girls Inc. of New York City has been educating and inspiring thousands of low income girls to better navigate gender, economic, and social barriers, for over 20 years. On Thursday, May 10, 2018, the non-profit will be hosting their Annual Spring Gala Luncheon and will be honoring Michelle Smith, Co-Founder and Creative Director of the New York based women’s contemporary brand, MILLY.
For over 4 months, Michelle mentored a group of hand-selected girls from Girls Inc. of New York City for the MILLY Challenge. The girls were broken up into teams of four and have been working alongside Michelle and her team to design t-shirts that embody the Girls Inc. mission- to inspire young women to grow up to be strong, smart and bold. The winning team will be announced at the event and their t-shirt will be selected, produced, and added to the current Milly X Girls Inc. NYC capsule collection designed by MILLY and consisting of empowerment tees, sweatshirts, and zip pouches.
