Style File: Divas Who Dine
Who says mixing business with a little pleasure is a bad thing. To stay at the top or your game you gotta network. And in tonight's style file, we're introducing you to a group of working women who give new meaning to girl power.
WSVN -- Up until a few weeks ago publicist CeCe Feinberg and marketing director Charity Chicon had never met. But now they've hooked up and as a result they're hooking up their prospective clients.
CeCe Feinberg from CeCe Feinberg PR: At the first meeting, I happened to meet Charity who is the PR person for Touch and as a result of that, I was able to hook up two of my fashion designers with her restaurant so that we could do a combined fashion show, which was great."
Charity Chacon: "It all worked out really well, she helped me with the PR aspect of it, introduced me to her designers and we had a great show."
That's the goal of the Divas Who Dine a networking organization for professional women.
The brainchild of Zoe Alexander -- the group started in New York, and now she's looking for a few good South Florida divas.
Zoe Alexander, founder Divas Who Dine: There is so much hot stuff happening in Miami, there are great parties, great celebrity parties, great events and these girls are really on top of."
The divas who dine get together once a month but there is no girl talk going on here. They do what the boys have been doing for years.
They talk about business. All business all the time, but the best part is they do it in the most stylish of places in South Florida
On this day it's lunch at the hot new Hotel Victor on South Beach.
Zoe: "The locations change from meeting to meeting just to change it up a bit, the last meeting was at the Shore Club in Miami, at Nobu, it was Diva Dinner which got very wild. It's only supposed to be a two hour dinner but the champagne started flowing."
Sure they get down to business but they have tons of fun in the process and why not, that's what we call a diva win-win situation.
Zoe: "In order to enjoy what you do, you have to like the people that you work with and you have to find a marriage of work and life cause you don't live to work, you work to live."
So grab a few cocktails, even get a quick makeover and do business the diva way.
Zoe: "Over Foie Gras a million dollar deal was put together, it's just amazing what happens."
