Inside Our Mamas Making It Panel at Platform Culver City

Although our #FMKFFPOPUP at Platform has come to a close, we're still thinking about all the fun we had during our daily events. One favorite was our #MamasMakingIt panel, which featured an intimate chat with four inspiring members and mamas: jewelry designer Ariel Gordon, superstar stylist Ann-Marie Hoang, tenoverten co-founder Nadine Abramcyk, and lifestyle blogger Erin Ziering.  

Fashion Mamas founder Natalie Alcala moderated the panel, which featured tons of truth bombs that all women could relate to. Ariel Gordon explained her journey to success (she started her Ariel Gordon Jewelry in 2009 in her Santa Monica apartment and now has famous fans that range from Jessica Alba to Gigi Hadid); Ann-Marie stressed the importance of living authentically (her most important tool is her Sonos sound system at home, which keeps her music-loving family moving throughout the day); Nadine revealed her wellness routine, which involves a cup of warm water and lemon every single morning (no wonder her skin is flawless); Erin shared her favorite ways to connect with her family, which involves a ton of fun trips and cuddles (her biggest fan is her husband Ian, who braved being the only guy at our event and sat right in the front row).   

Special thanks to tenoverten for hosting complimentary non-toxic manicures at our event (we can't wait until they open at Platform), and to Pure Growth Organic for hooking up the healthy snacks!
