“There is no royal flower-strewn path to success. And if there is, I have not found it, for if I have accomplished anything in life is because I have been willing to work hard.” – Madam C.J. Walker, America’s first female entrepreneur.

What do Coco Chanel, Dianne Von Furstenberg, Arianna Huffington, J.K.Rowling have in common? They are dynamic, influential women who made a true mark in each of their fields. Here at Jia Collection we like to celebrate girl power. Meeting successful women entrepreneurs and listening to their stories inspires us and give hope to millions of women everywhere that their dreams can come true.

This week Jia Li attended the Business Chicks Breakfast at Gotham Hall in New York wearing the power chic reversible Andela dress. She was thrilled to meet their celebrity speaker Bethenny Frankel from the Real Housewives of New York City. 

 Read on to see how Jia reversed the dress which took her from a day event to an evening party.

Bethenny writes about her self discovery in her book "A Place of Yes". We were happy to get a signed copy of her book and loved the dedication at the beginning:


“At Business Chicks we believe that great stuff happens when women come together to uplift and inspire each other. When we stop competing, and start lending a hand. When we give of ourselves and our expertise so that others can benefit from it. We imagine a world where women feel part of something bigger than themselves, and a world where we feel safe to give anything a go. If you believe in this too, then we'd love to welcome you into our community.

Our guest speakers are innovators and revolutionaries in their field, national icons, global superstars - all truly influential and willing to share the journey behind their successes and purpose in life.” Learn more at

The Business Chicks Breakfast was just the first stop for Jia that day. Jia Collection was featured at the Global Wanders Music and Travel event that happened at The Jimmy Rooftop Bar in New York. GLOBEWANDERS is a global dance music party that brings together appreciators & innovators in world dance music + world travel + world culture.

Jia reversed the Andela dress for the night event, transitioning seamlessly from day to evening wear. Isn’t the classic New York skyline just beautiful?

We ran into Heather Boos Crandell, Executive Consultant at the Rodan + Fields and her friend Sourya. Heather is wearing the reversible Erika dress and Sourya layered her dress with the Arianna cardigan.
