Former Entrepreneur Training for Success graduate, Evelyn Brooks, has found great success since her time in the program.
Her jewelry design has brought her recognition internationally, with designs featured in the National Building Museum, The Women’s Museum for the Arts, the Harvard Museum of Natural History, and the Museum of Art & Design in New York, among other places. She recently has been awarded with the Fashion Chamber Choice Award, the Young Entrepreneur Award, the Anna Maria Arias Memorial Business Funds Award, and was labelled one of the most notable peruvian artists in Washington DC by Washington Life magazine.
In honor of her enormous success, the always humble Evelyn will be hosting her annual VIP reception to thank her wonderful clients. The event will feature an in-house Peruvian chef, and a collection of Evelyn’s latest jewelry designs.
The reception will be on:
November 11th, 2012
at the Hawthorn Suites,
420 N. Van Dorn st
Alexandria, VA 22304
And in honor of the 10th anniversary, Evelyn will be generously donating 10% of all jewelry sold to EWI!
Evelyn was born and raised in Peru. Her father was a jeweler since the age of 14, and her mother ran a successful fashion boutique. At the age of 21, Evelyn graduated from a business school in Peru and began a career in the travel industry. Luckily enough, her travels brought her to the DC area, where she found her passion in jewelry, while taking classes at the Torpedo Factory, the Gemological Institute of America, and Empowered Women International. And as they say, the rest is history….
Best of luck to you, Evelyn, and thank you for your generous gift of donating a portion of your jewelry show sales in honor of EWI’s 10 Year Anniversary!
