Annual Luncheon

This year, Rebecca Minkoff will headline the Junior League of Midland’s Shotguns & Stilettos Annual Luncheon.

About Rebecca Minkoff

An industry leader in accessible luxury handbags, accessories, footwear and apparel, Rebecca Minkoff’s playful and subtly edgy designs can be spotted around the world on young women and celebrities alike.

After developing an affinity for design while in the costume department in high school, Rebecca Minkoff moved to New York City at only 18 years old to pursue her dream of becoming a fashion designer.

In 2001, Rebecca designed a version of the “I Love New York” t-shirt as part of a five-piece capsule collection, which appeared on The Tonight Show and became an overnight sensation.

In 2005, Rebecca designed her first handbag, which she soon dubbed the “Morning After Bag,” a.k.a. the “M.A.B.” This iconic bag ignited Rebecca’s career as a handbag designer and inspired her edgy, feminine creations in the years to come. Rebecca’s success was further enhanced by the support of her brother and the company’s CEO and co-founder, Uri Minkoff, who helped usher in and pioneer the company’s industry-leading social media efforts.

After four years of designing statement-making handbags and accessories with her trademark leathers, studs and hardware, Rebecca returned to her roots of apparel design and introduced her first ready-to-wear collection in 2009.

Today, Rebecca Minkoff is a global brand with a wide range of apparel, handbags, footwear, jewelry and accessories (including tech) as well as men’s accessories under the label Uri Minkoff. In the spring of 2017, Rebecca Minkoff Watches was launched, reimagining the category through their decidedly downtown, Rock and Roll aesthetic. Uri Minkoff also introduced its own distinct line of menswear timepieces.

The brand has four domestic retail stores, eight international locations, and is distributed in over 900 stores worldwide. In 2011, Rebecca won industry recognition when she was awarded the Breakthrough Designer Award from the Accessories Council. She is an active member of the CFDA and supports multiple philanthropies including Jessica Seinfeld’s non-profit, Baby Buggy. In August of 2017, she was announced as a member of the first-ever New York State Council on Women and Girls, in the company of other female industry leaders including Refinery29 founder Christene Barberich, SoulCycle CEO Melanie Whelan and Deloitte CEO Cathy Engelbert. Rebecca is dedicated to bringing women together to enact positive change.

In September of 2018, she established the Female Founder Collective, a network of businesses led by women that invests in women’s financial power across the socio-economic spectrum by enabling and empowering female-owned businesses.

Rebecca is married to actor and director Gavin Bellour and they reside in Brooklyn with their three children.

 

Clay Shoot

We are pleased to announce that our 19th annual Clay Shoot will be held on Friday, March 20, 2020. Experienced and novice shooters alike are encouraged to attend. Bring your colleagues, clients, family and friends out for a fun filled day of shooting and help raise funds to continue the Junior League of Midland’s important civic work. Two flights – at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm – will be offered this year.

Prizes for top shooters will be given as well as door prizes and a gun board (or two!).

Bash

Join us at our annual gala as we celebrate JLM’s community impact in Midland. This year, we invite you to A Southern Soiree, an evening of Cajun-inspired decadence, dancing, and a silent and live auction. You will be entertained by Louisiana Hall of Fame Band Bag of Donuts.
