Now that the kids are in school I am able to get into NYC for some blog events again. Last week I excitedly travelled to The Fashion Forward Conference which was so conveniently located at 404, a beautiful space just a quick walk from Penn Station. The room was packed with individuals well versed in social media and the fashion industry at this invite only event coordinated by my buddy Vera Sweeney and her partners. It’s nice to have powerful friends!
Through panels, fashions shows, speakers and several floors of brands (Listed above…I’ll talk more about some of them in future posts) I was exposed to many different people and brands and learned a lot about business, style, fashion and social media. There were also several celebs there including the keynote speaker Rosie Pope along with Phillip Bloch who was the fashion expert and Countess LuAnn de Lesseps from the Real Housewives of NY who was a panel speaker.
I had to peel out early to book it back home to grab the kids off the bus so I missed the fashion show. But what I saw was really cool. There was alotta female power in that room!
