The Launch Party Was a Success!


Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who came out last night to Nomi Network's first Product Launch Party! We started the night off in a fabulous SOHO boutique, White Saffron, promoting its gorgeous products coupled with our slave-free slogan-tote bags. What a sight to see: people overflowing into the streets, sipping on Chardonnay, and slinging their new tote bags in an array of cheerful colors to welcome the fall.


Next we sauntered a couple blocks over to NYU's Puck building where we mixed and mingled while viewing the profound photography of Tara Israel, Nomi's lead photographer, and hearing our keynote actress/director Esosa Edosomwan speak powerfully about the change we need to empower women to surmount stereotypes and combat sexual abuse in every form.
We ended the night listening to the stories of some of Nomi's core-team members, including Supei Liu, our resident product-developer-guru just back from Cambodia and brimming with the sincere accounts of the true hero's of the evening: the women - the survivors - who Nomi Network is now supporting and giving a voice to through the sale of our socially conscious BUY HER BAG NOT HER BODY tote-bags.



To those of you who couldn't make it out, we know you were there in spirit and we appreciate you so much! Hope to see you next time and stay tuned for our holiday fund raising efforts for freedom and fashion fighting together...

--from Alissa, Diana and Team Nomi.
