Gucci Westman, Leslie Fremar in Conversation at Theory Career Day

Theory’s Career Day initiative kicked off in New York last night with a conversation between Hollywood stylist Leslie Fremar and celebrity makeup-artist-turned-beauty-entrepreneur Gucci Westman.
Career Day is an extension of Theory’s women’s leadership series, Be Heard, a program founded last year to mark the company’s 20th anniversary and empower its younger employees with a voice and a more entrepreneurial spirit. Be Heard has spawned several events in New York, Miami and Los Angeles, with speakers including Away cofounder Jen Rubio; Alexandra Wilkis Wilson of Gilt and Glamsquad; Drybar founder Alli Webb; Reformation founder Yael Aflalo; Alexandra Friedman of Lola; Hillary Kerr of Clique Brands; author and activist Tiffany Dufu, and Glennda Testone, executive director of the LGBT Center in New York.
Career Day, the latest iteration, is meant to be a more intimate conversation between two female entrepreneurs, followed by workshops based on the speakers’ areas of expertise. Theory plans to host Career Day events six times a year on the rooftop of its New York headquarters — last night’s event was held in the retail store due to rain.
At last night’s Career Day installment, Westman and Fremar held court in front of a crowd of mostly young women gathered inside Theory’s Meatpacking District
