Take a look behind the green curtain with Tanqueray & friends.
“I appreciate the work that Tanqueray is doing by giving budding entrepreneurs the opportunity to breakout into the mainstream,” said two-time Grammy Award winner Common. “Tanqueray gets it and is truly making a difference.”
This weekend Tanqueray USA and Common will be kicking off the #TanquerayTrunkShow, their new national event series where entrepreneurs across the country will get the chance to hear from four brand architects from the worlds of style, entrepreneurship and entertainment and network with other budding go-getters, with an exclusive performance by the Oscar-nominated emcee to end the night’s festivities.
The Tanqueray Trunk Show- a two-part event- will go from New York City To Houston, Texas from Janaury 31st to April 11th. During the daytime, attendees will participate in a panel discussion hosted by Team Epiphany founder Coltrane Curtis to learn the process of starting and branding your own business while networking with peers, which will include panelists:
- Maxwell Osborne: Head Designer for Black Apple and Public School brands. Winner of 2013 CFDA Swarovski® Award for Menswear and 2013 CFDA VOGUE Fashion Fund Award.
- Ronnie Fieg: Owner and Designer of footwear boutique KITH NYC. Named one of the most influential sneaker-head innovators by Complex Magazine.
- Jason Geter: Manager of stars like Iggy Azalea. Founder of Grand Hustle Records, Akoo and Striver’s Row clothing line.
- DJ M.O.S.: One of the most sought after DJs in the U.S. Named to Vanity Fair’s top 10 best-dressed DJs list and a fixture on NYC’s downtown fashion scene
Afterwards the attendees will be able to create their own spin on the classic Tanqueray and tonic cocktail, which will then lead to the post-celebration featuring a performance by Common and sets by DJ Wonder.
“We see this program as a riff on the traditional trunk show,” said Keith Scott, Tanqueray Senior Brand Manager. “The leaders on our panel are sharing both their in-demand physical creations, as well as their personal take on how to play and win the style game. Our goal is to inspire and equip the next generation of successful entrepreneurs, while enjoying some great cocktails and compelling music along the way.”
