Tarbert-based Essence of Harris is starring on the world stage again after a major award at a New York international gift fair. 

Company founder Jamie McGowan, who is at the show, said he was “absolutely delighted” to get a Best Product award in Beauty & Wellness.   

NY NOW® describes itself as the place where brands, designers and buyers gather to connect and discover a world of inspiration

“NY NOW is the modern wholesale market for retailers and specialty buyers seeking diversity and discovery. Gathering twice a year in America’s design capital, New York City. it’s where buyers and designers unearth a refreshed and dedicated collection of eclectic lifestyle products. 

“NY NOW is the best platform to build brand exposure. To generate leads and write orders. To customize. Right now.”

And this show is all part of the pandemic bounce-back. The venue states: “We are thrilled to have NY NOW® back at the Javits Center!

“This exciting event was our first when we resumed event operations last year, and now we’re proud to have them help us continue to move New York’s economy forward.

“With a collection of eclectic lifestyle products, it’s the perfect place for retailers and specialty buyers to discover the latest trends in a modern wholesale market.”

And, of course, celebrities are among the crowds. Jamie met actress Jennifer Garner known for her performance as CIA officer Sydney Bristow in the spy-action thriller television series Alias for which she won a Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress in a Television Drama and received four consecutive Primetime Emmy Award nominations.

“New York is just full of surprises amazing to meet Jennifer Garner last night, she was so genuine and lovely,” said Jamie on LinkedIn.
