NEW YORK, May 19, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Iconic women's fashion brand Anne Klein has tapped the namesake designer's granddaughter Jesse Gre Rubinstein to spearhead the upcoming launch of Anne Klein's new social series titled, WOMEN WHO DO, featuring innovative thinking women who are notably making a difference.
Following in the footsteps of Anne Klein who inspired so many, Jesse will host a Facebook Live series that will premiere on Wednesday, May 20th at 9am PST/ 12pm EST. Each week the series will feature the heroes of today, inspiring the next generation of trailblazers, with guests from a variety of industries, many of whom are currently championing aid during the pandemic along with the Anne Klein brand. In April, Jesse united with her grandmother's brand to launch COVID-19 relief efforts and deliver 100,000 masks to essential workers throughout the United States.
"Uniting with the Anne Klein brand at this critical time and supporting my grandmother's legacy by being able to speak with inspiring women is an honor," said Jesse Gre Rubinstein, founder & CEO of social media agency, Hello There Collective. "My hope is that this initiative serves as the launch of a powerful network that can help, support and inspire others not only in the present, but as we begin to rebuild. As my grandmother Anne Klein insightfully declared, "Clothes aren't going to change the world. The women who wear them will."
The series will kick off with notables and topics including:
- Kara Goldin, Founder & CEO Hint Inc., Believing In Oneself on May 20th
- Yale University's Professor of Psychology, Dr. Laurie Santos, Happiness Is Within Reach on May 27th
