By Home Furnishings Business in on August 2007
Kathy Ireland—the former model whose name and designs help sell $1.4 billion worth of mostly home furnishings products annually—will address the 4th Annual International Youth Assembly at the United Nations Monday.
At the speech at U.N. Headquarters in New York, Ireland, who Forbes
magazine once called a “supermodel-turned-super-mogul,” will discuss how developing countries can reach their goals. She’ll also have lunch with Youth Assembly participants.
“Our future belongs to our youth,” Ireland said, according to an announcement released Thursday. “It is a great honor to join these young leaders at the United Nations for this powerful event. Secretary General Elaine Valdov and the great team at Friendship Ambassadors Foundation are amazing in their efforts to inspire young people to lead and to change the planet.”
Ireland is president and CEO of Kathy Ireland Worldwide, a design and marketing firm that has teamed to produce furniture collections with companies such as Standard, Martin, Shaw Living and Therapedic.
