Meet our Belle of the Week, Ms. T. Gabrielle Barnes!
Through her own needs, an amazing organization developed…
Gabrielle has always had a knack for coordinating events for friends and family. It wasn’t until she was planning one of the most memorable days of her life, that she realized event planning was more than just a hobby, it was her calling. That moment was the crux of her ambitions and determination. Never one to shy away from hard work or “paying dues”, she began at the bottom and has worked her way to the top. Gabrielle went from volunteering for 2 years as an event assistant to starting her own event planning firm.
Gabrielle is the founder and president of Divas in the City (DITC), a social and professional networking organization for today’s do it all woman…the Diva. DITC provides women with outlets to connect online through their “virtual club house” and in person through an array of entertaining, educating and empowering public events. Divas in the City offers numerous components, and with so many women’s organizations sprouting up they continually strive to be the best and not classified as just another “one-size-fits-all” network.
Her most recent endeavor is Canvas 7 Events – A full service special events boutique firm. From product launches and fashion shows to cocktail parties and charity galas to weddings, Canvas 7 Events has experience in both private and corporate event planning.
Watch out world, this Diva is destined for greatness and fully committed to building her “Diva Empire”.
Gabrielle currently resides in Brooklyn, NY. Always the motivator Gabrielle encourages every woman to “Embrace your inner Diva and always, Be Blessed. Be Fabulous. Be YOU!”
