The Medjet event in NYC brought together an international group of ELYSIAN Inspiring Women to converge and discuss the theme of health and wellness.
On Tuesday, July 22, women flew from near and far to join The ELYSIAN Circle of Inspiring Women for the ELYSIAN x Medjet Perfect Escape Cocktail party. Hosted in a lush, historic Soho loft, Inspiring Women from all over the world converged and conversed surrounded by the beautiful art of internationally recognized artist Edwina Sandys. Her work follows a theme of highlighting the beauty and strength of women, creating the perfect backdrop for forging connections.
In keeping with the gathering’s theme of health and wellness, the event was sponsored by Medjet, an air medical transport company that provides international travel security, represented by Sheri Howell, ELYSIAN Inspiring Woman to be featured in the Fall 2019 issue.
It was a wonderful evening that brought together women from all over the world, including current and former ambassadors, designers, entrepreneurs, authors and artists. ELYSIAN would like to thank all of our wonderful attendees for making the evening wonderfully memorable. Cheers to the #Medjetset!
