To kick off the launch of the Tanqueray Trunk Show series, a two-part event was established to shed light on the importance of entrepreneurship, branding and style.
The first event was a panel discussion that featured Team Epiphany founder and AdColor winner Coltrane Curtis; Black Apple founder and CFDA VOGUE award winner Maxwell Osborne; founder of KITH NYC Ronnie Fieg; and founder of Grand Hustle and Striver’s Row clothing Jason Geter.
“This event is really about mentorship,” Geter told rolling out. “Me and a couple of guys in the room are just talking about struggles and our journeys to where we are today. It’s full of people that are looking to learn. It’s about a mentality. It’s about wanting more and getting more. For future entrepreneurs, it’s about educating yourself. It’s about going hard every day and understanding that nothing is going to be given to you. You have to get out there and fight for it and take it at the end of the day.”
After the event, a second event was held at Tao, which featured a live concert by Oscar nominee Common.
