I’m finally home and it feels so good! My sincerest apologies for the absence of posts, I’ve been traveling non stop. At least I have a few days back in Chicago to edit some footage before heading off to Paris for my favorite week of the year!
Since returning from Las Vegas I’ve kept in touch with a bunch of the amazing people I got to during my few days there. One of whom, was Erica Domesek of P.S. I Made This. On top of being so nice, she is incredibly creative. If you haven’t seen her blog before you must check it out, you’ll want to start crafting everything you see! Below is a clip of Erica telling the story behind how she started P.S. I Made This and all of the exciting opportunities that have come of it…
On our second day at WWDMAGIC, Erica had a station set up where we fashioned these amazing pearl necklaces. Here are a few pictures from the workshop and Erica modeling the final product.
Hi to all! I’m finally in Las Vegas at WWDMAGIC and have been so busy (but it’s been so much fun)!! Yesterday was my first day at the show where I got to spend time in the Teen Vogue Blogger Lounge with some friends and fellow bloggers. Besides participating in the Teen Vogue ‘Style-off’, another highlight of my day was spending some time in the skybox with the Vice President of WWDMAGIC Mr. Christopher Griffin. It was great talking with someone whose target audience isn’t necessarily the New York Fashion Week crowd, but rather the majority of consumers across America. Below is a quick clip of him talking about the ‘turn-over’ rate in fashion. As much as I love fashion week, I do think it’s a bit silly that as we speak designers are showing collections that won’t be available to the public for practically six months. He had some great points that addressed this perplexing idea and how WWDMAGIC is the answer.
Here are a few pictures I took yesterday of WWDMAGIC and the Teen Vogue lounge. It was madness… But so fun!
As you may have seen earlier this week on my Twitter page, I have been chosen as one of the 30 blogger correspondents at the WWDMAGIC conference this coming February!! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the event, MAGIC is a three day fashion extravaganza held in Las Vegas at the convention center. The show is credited as the leader in introducing both new and already established brands to industry executives. Attendees are exposed to over 20,000 product lines from around the globe as well as numerous seminars and fashion events. It is my first time ever attending and I couldn’t be more excited to have been chosen! With my fellow bloggers, I will be running around the show reporting on key trends, doing reviews of new hot brands that will be streaming live, participate in style-offs and panels, and spending time in Teen Vogue’s first-ever blogger lounge. For even more information concerning the event, like a complete list of participating brands, check out the WWDMAGIC website.
I’ve already started thinking about my outfits and unfortunately I don’t think this is a time where I’ll be able to get away with wearing killer shoes. Comfort is key! I plan on running around for three solid days so e-mail me or post a comment if you request I visit any particular brands that you’d like to know more about… Would love to hear some suggestions! I can’t control my excitement, thank you again Teen Vogue and WWDMAGIC!
