‘Unleash Your Inner Supernova’- Bonafide Supernova hold first ever event set to spark Birmingham creative’s
On the 21st March, Bonafide Supernova team held their first ever event at The Studio Birmingham in a bid to spark enthusiasm and present a new way of networking for the modern day woman of the ‘future’.
Bonafide Supernova started in May 2011, as a blog site dedicated to young women 18-35 yrs old, who are fashion—forward, fashion trendsetting, style blazing young women; who don’t try to be something they are not, but just ‘love’ being chic & stylish. Bonafide believes this generation of young women create their own platforms to express their interests & passions online and beyond.
The event, titled ‘Unleash Your Inner Supernova’ was organised by Samantha Thodhlana (Director at YEP Media & Editor of Bonafide Supernova), in collaboration with the aspiring contributors of the Bonafide Supernova team.
The event was held at the heart of Birmingham city centre, in the trendy and chic venue- The Studio, 7 Cannon Street. Guests were treated to a selection of canapés and wine; while they mingled and got to know each other before the main event started.
Facilitated by Bonafide Supernova & YEP Media team, the event cracked off with a speed networking session set to engage and encourage guests to ‘get to know’ each other .
Wiza Lausanne Kimbidima, The Beauty Shop UK (@TheBeautyShopUK) then set the ball rolling with an entertaining & motivational insight into being a creative thinker; not settling for second best but most of all being resolute to succeed. Her talk gave a dynamic approach to the attendees; who felt extremely inspired and enthused by her talk.
During this point most guests had purchased raffle tickets in aid to support the Forgotten Vintage charity: that supports homeless services across the city run by SIFA Fireside and Reach the People Charity. Prizes included; tickets to Midlands Fashion Designer Awards, tickets to Buy My Wardrobe taking place on Saturday 14th April, £25 Forgotten Vintage Gift Voucher & an amazing novelty cake from Birmingham’s finest- Kiss Me Cupcakes plus many more splendid give-aways.
Bonafide Supernova chose Forgotten Vintage to be its main charity for the next year and will continue to support their cause throughout 2012; so please prolong to also support them in their charitable causes. At Unleash Your Inner Supernova event we managed to rise over £70 through raffle and we had the pleasure of a few guests donating items of clothing.
Samantha Thodhlana said, “I believe you need to have passion for what you do and enjoy what you do. The best thing to accomplish as an entrepreneur is to know what you love, share your passion, knowledge and creative spark with other like-minded people and then all that’s left to do is present your own unique style. This first Bonafide Supernova event was the first of many events to come and eventually I’d love to create an international ‘Supernova’ network of the women of tomorrow!”
Feedback from those who attended the event found Unleash Your Inner Supernova an exciting opportunity to network and gain advice from other like-minded individuals/ professionals who have accomplished or are in the process of achieving many things.
Overall, Unleash Your Inner Supernova enabled guests to network, share tips and learn from each other but in a fun and fabulous environment- filled with food, drink and lots of ‘sugary’ goodies.
The next event will be taking place on May 23rd, once again at The Studio, Birmingham; so watch out for the promo material going out very soon.
