IBE was founded to support the growth and success of Indie brands and the entrepreneurs behind them.
About Indie Beauty Expo: AN UNMET NEED ,Founded by celebrity esthetician, Jillian Wright, and entrepreneur, Nader Naeymi-Rad, IBE was established to help the fast-growing category of indie brands connect to Buyers, Press, Consumers and Investors.
We had the pleasure of meeting many brands and had the opportunity to interview many people from all over the world showcasing many of their brands that were making a debut at the Indie Beauty Expo, here in New York City.
The 38th India Day Parade, sponsored by the Federation of Indian Associations (FIA-NY/NJ/CT), will be held on Sunday, August 19, in New York City, starting at the corner of 38th Street and Madison Avenue, to commemorate the 72nd Independence Day of India.
With keeping our theme in mind, we thank UNISEF USA, who will be joining us in this year’s parade to support the Indian American diaspora, community and the world’s children.
The streets will be filled with bachata, merengue, colorful floats and costumes, with thousands of people expected to participate.
The parade starts at noon on Sixth Avenue and West 36th Street, and will make its way up to West 56th Street. The theme of this year’s parade is “Our Youth, Our Future. “Ambassadors were chosen because of their impact on the youth in the community.
