If, as feminist historian Laurel Thatcher Ulrich once said, “well behaved women seldom make history,” then the creative editorial boutique known as Wild(child) made a play for the history books last week, throwing a raucous celebration in honor of Women’s History Month. Co-hosted by independent sales representative Roxeanneandco. and film production company goodstory, the Thursday event brought together a selection of women and men from dozens of NYC ad agencies and production companies to Wild(child)’s sprawling Flatiron studio for an evening of food, art, and good old-fashioned misbehaving.
“We were recently introduced to goodstory through our rep Roxanne Artesona” noted Wild(child) owner Yvette Pineyro. “There was such incredible synergy at that meeting and since each of our companies are women-owned and operated, we decided to throw a party to celebrate Women’s History Month and help connect all the amazing and powerful women in advertising, film, and art.” Wild(child) has a wide-ranging collection of art created by local women artists displayed throughout their space and used this opportunity to show off and bolster their collection with the unveiling of two stunning new pieces; “Everybody’s Got The Fever” by artist Serena Bocchino and “La femme aux Nuages” a photopainting by photographer/artist Nesya Blue.
“It was more than just a party, it was a great way for amazingly talented women in a variety of industries to connect and compare creative notes about each others crafts.” noted EP Amy Lazarus. “We were happy to help start a conversation that we all could benefit from – all while shining the spotlight on Women’s History Month.”
