We’re excited to announce that AMP3 PR has added luxury women’s footwear brand Joan Oloff to our client roster.
Joan Oloff was founded in 2013 by Dr. Joan Oloff, a renowned foot & ankle surgeon. Through her overwhelming desire to truly merge the worlds of fashion and comfort, Dr. Oloff has created a line of fun and flirty styles as well as more classic silhouettes that women will be able to wear for a lifetime.
With her own patent pending technology, Dr. Oloff has designed a high fashion luxury heel that is constructed in such a way that it can accommodate the structure and function of the human foot, while still maintaining the delicate and beautiful lines of a high-heel.
On November 9th, non-profit “Bridges of Understanding” (BOU) hosted its annual awards gala which celebrates the power of the performing arts to serve as a catalyst for intercultural dialogue and understanding, at The Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse at Lincoln Center.
The event included the 8th annual presentation of the Building Bridges Award by InStyle Magazine’s Ariel Foxman to Tony Award-winning director Julie Taymor (The Lion King, Frida, Across The Universe), for her work championing global citizenship.
The event also featured the premiere of a new video and podcast series called: Places of Pilgrimage. It’s a series which gives young females from the Middle East a voice, turning their personal stories into monologues read by prominent Arab-American personalities—including screenwriter & director Cherien Dabis (ABCss Quantico), television actor Nadia Dajani (Sex & The City, 2 Broke Girls, The Carrie Diaries), and renowned composer Mohammed Fairouz, who premiered a new composition for the occasion. The video & podcast series has now officially launched to the public as well and can be viewed at: bridgesofunderstanding.org/places-of-pilgrimage/.
Bridges of Understanding is a non-profit aimed at bridging the gap between Americans and the Arab World through community outreach and in-school education programs (including video-conferencing based curriculum) at the middle school and high school level, including schools in New York City.
