FLY NEWS: Bevy Smith Featured In The New York Times …

bevyimage2

We absolutely LOVE when our favorite Fly guys and girls make FLY headlines worthy of national attention. It’s so inspiring, and gives us just one more motivational push to move forward towards our goals. Who do you ask has inspired us this time? None other than our favorite Hosts/Fashionista, Bevy Smith

Aunty Bevy has been featured in the New York Times in a piece about people who host IRL’s also known as In Real Life dinner parties and actually make residual income by prompting and guiding others to make valuable connections all the while maintaining and making valuable connections themselves. The article dives into the many reasons why these talented dot connectors do what they do.

According to The New York Times;

TARGET & BEVY SMITH HONOR PHARRELL WILLIAMS

“There is a market for this because people have lost the fine art of conversation,” said Bevy Smith, the creator of Dinner With Bevy. “People are so busy trying to network, they forget about connecting.” Ms. Smith beams when she meets someone new. “Why, hello!” she purred to a waiter at Red Rooster Harlem one recent Friday. He smiled, captivated by his customer. Ms. Smith oozes natural charm, which makes her the belle of the ball at the invitation-only dinners she organizes for a high-end clientele.

Her 86,300 Twitter followers (and fans of “Fashion Queens,” a show on Bravo she is a host of) revel in her good humor. Born in Harlem, Ms. Smith knows many people employed in glamorous industries, having worked in fashion advertising at Rolling Stone and Vibe.

For her events, she insists on a sit-down meal. “A lot of times I got pushback from clients saying: ‘This is a lot of money. Why don’t we do a cocktail party?’ ” she said. “I say, ‘Well, no, because a cocktail party means transient conversation.’ ” At a dinner party guests have three hours to connect. “You only have an hour at a cocktail party,” she said.

For the 2012 Oscars she hosted a dinner sponsored by Target for the singer Pharrell Williams at the Chateau Marmont. The same year, Belvedere Vodka sponsored a party at Tiny’s and the Bar Upstairs in TriBeCa. Ms. Smith sat Misty Copeland, a ballerina for the American Ballet Theater, next to the filmmaker and culture critic Nelson George. He is now making a documentary about Ms. Copeland’s life.

How amazing is that? And how amazing is Bevy?
