THE ICONS: Stories of Grit & Glory
Rebels. Trailblazers. Innovators. These women have broken barriers to build some of the most well-known brands on the planet, but do you recognize their stories?
A fashion designer and mother of five, this former copy writer has become one of the most recognizable archetypes of the working mom.
She used her own lifestyle as inspiration for women who work, raise children, and entertain. In doing so, she addressed the market gap among consumers looking for a polished and effortless look on-the-go.
This very personal stamp on her brand has led to extraordinarily rapid growth. In less than a decade, she managed to build a billion-dollar fashion brand.
FROM A FARMER'S MARKET
TO 90 MILLION HOMES...
On August 7, 2017 FRESHVOICES launched during an unprecedented 24-hour live TV marathon on HSN supporting women entrepreneurs and Vital Voices.
HSN is one of the most powerful vehicles for women entrepreneurs to achieve success. By reaching 90 million households, the network enables women entrepreneurs to directly speak to their customers, bypassing traditional barriers.
A MOMENT OF INSPIRATION.
AN UNLIKELY JOURNEY.
On August 7, FreshPaper Inventor Kavita appeared live on HSN for 24 hours to share her simple innovation.
FreshPaper began as Kavita's middle school science project, but it took her nearly a decade to find the courage to take the next step with her idea. She started out by taking a handmade batch of FreshPaper to her local farmer’s market.
That moment changed everything for Kavita's small social enterprise, catapulting her simple idea to national consciousness.
