Bronze Beauty & Wellness Expo NYC: Provides Positive Space for Women of Color

Women from all over attended the Bronze Beauty & Wellness Expo last Saturday at the beautiful multi-level PUNTO SPACE, our VENUE HOST SPONSOR in NYC. Presented by Bronze Magazine in partnership with New York-based YA IndieGround Houst Mgmt, the expo’s theme was a celebration of the total beauty and well-being of women of color – inside out.

Our VIP beverage sponsors, Brooklyn Tea and Sparkling Ice made sure VIPs felt refreshed while receiving their beauty and spa treatments. And sponsor Guillaume Brand delighted VIPs with delectable vegan bites.

R&B artist ESNAVI gave a soulful performance that left everyone wanting more. “The Way” singer also had CDs on hand for purchase.

The Sparkle Lounge, courtesy of Sparkling Ice was abuzz on the main level with attendees taking time out for fun selfies at our photo booth and to hang out with our special guests, “The Glossy Posse” ladies of  Support Your Girlfriends.

One of the most powerful highlights of the expo was our discussion panels on beauty, health, wellness, entrepreneurism and finances. Our amazing panel moderators included Wellness-Purpose Coach | Wellness Educator, Sweet Eden by Sheron,  Dr. Sheron Brown and DAP Media Group, LLC Co-founders, Patricia Rivera and Diana McCray, who kept the conversations flowing and the audience engaged. Our expert panelists were phenomenal! Each contributed a wealth of knowledge and tidbits of wisdom for the audience to walk away feeling informed, inspired and empowered.
