Designer Rebecca Minkoff has always supported women’s businesses, but her “a-ha” moment came during a meeting last summer.
Minkoff was talking to the head of a company about working together for her namesake fashion brand and asked which of their businesses were female-owned. She wanted to work with just those brands.
“They said, ‘We don’t really have a way to do that,’” Minkoff told “Morning Joe” co-host and Know Your Value founder Mika Brzezinski during an interview that aired March 8, International Women’s Day. “It dawned on me: If they had a symbol on their roster denoting the female-founded companies, it would be far easier.”
