What happens when you bring together three rising stars and a very determined Hollywood actress-turned-shoe designer? You get a firsthand look into the excitement and challenges that come with being a young talent.
Designers Nicholas Kirkwood, Jerome Rousseau, Alejandro Ingelmo and Yeardley Smith (the voice of Lisa Simpson on “The Simpsons” and founder of Marchez Vous YS) opened up about launching their businesses, building buzz and overcoming obstacles. Here are excerpts from their conversation during the second day at the summit.
"I think that all anyone really wants in life is to have people understand us for who we actually are, despite everything," says Ruth Negga. The actress talks "Preachers" season 2 and more on WWD.com. #wwdeye (📷: Dan Doperalski)
"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
