To celebrate Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, industry players gathered to ring the opening Nasdaq bell on Wednesday.
Peter Levy, SVP, managing director of IMG Fashion, designer Charlotte Ronson, and Elyse Kroll, founder and chairman of ENK International, were on hand for the opening of the trading day.
“Opening NASDAQ this morning and being part of their opening bell ceremony was a powerful way to celebrate the fashion industry as a whole, and bring recognition to the various components of our global fashion community,” said Kroll. “Being there with Peter Levy and the talented Charlotte Ronson was an honor as ENK International looks forward to kicking off Fashion Coterie, and celebrating the 10th anniversary of Sole Commerce.”
For Ronson, Fashion Week kicked off a range of new opportunities.
“This has been an exciting week between showing my collection at Lincoln center and Charlotte Ronson Beauty launching at Sephora on Sept. 15,” she said. “The opportunity to ring the NASDAQ bell was the perfect way to celebrate.”
