Chaired by philanthropist Yaz Hernandez, the event celebrated Mercado Global’s work to empower women and promote ethical practices in the fashion industry.  New York based jewelry designer Pamela Love received the 2017 Fashion Forward Visionary Award.  Guests, including prominent business leaders, top retailers, and major philanthropists, all enjoyed an evening of cocktails, dinner and dancing to celebrate. 

During the cocktail hour, guests had the opportunity to bid on a stunning array of items at the silent auction.
The auction included amazing items like Jenny Packham jewelry ensemble; Marchesa jewelry ensemble; Silvia Tcherassi item; Guatemala Getaway; Tomas Maier bag; Etro bag; Macro Palli Art piece;  Theory item; Signed gloves from Manny Pacquiaol Custom shoes by Lareymondie; Point shoes signed by Stella Abrera, Marcelo Lua, Cory Stearns, Misty Copeland, and Gillian Murphy; Milos Raonic Wimbledon shoes and hardcourt shoes; and a Giuseppe Zanotti Clutch to name a few.


It was a beautiful night with a beautiful message, and I had an amazing time. 
We're humbled by the support of our NYC community tonight... and we're thrilled to celebrate women's empowerment with such a successful event!"- Executive Director Ruth DeGolia.
