The New York clothing brand held a virtual panel to honor nine extraordinary women making strides.
With its second annual UnordinaryWomen campaign, Lafayette148 New York honors change-making women a bit differently this year—The celebration was held over Zoom.

Fashion photographer and 2019 UnordinaryWomen honoree Sophie Elgort and stylist Meredith Koop worked alongside the clothing brand to create the campaign. Co-founder and CEO of Lafayette 148 Deirdre Quinn says, “Whether you’re 20 or 60, your voice has the power to inspire so many other women throughout their journeys, now more than ever. If ever there was a time when we need to tell and share these stories, this is it.” Teaming up with Girl Rising, an organization dedicated to worldwide women’s education, empowering girls and ending gender discrimination, Lafayette 148 will donate $10 to the initiative for every post and comment using the hashtag #148UnordinaryWomen on Facebook and Instagram.
