The Chictopia10 conference was a sucess! It was so interesting to hear all the panelists speak and to especially see SUSIE BUBBLE IN THE FLESH.
I had the pleasure of meeting the very lovely, Taghrid.
fellow blogger, Hannah looks adorable at Chictopia10.
Susan Koger (ModCloth) and Naomi Nevitt (new media consultant extraordinaire.)
My favorite part of the conference was "Why we value individual style." I thought it was really interesting to hear from Susan Koger from Modcloth and Jennifer Wexler from Botkier bags, and how different and yet equally important they use, translate, and value their customer feedback. I even learned that on Modcloth's website you can "be the buyer" and choose clothing items that you'd like to see on the site.
Naomi Nevitt has been one of my career idols for quite a while. I love her style, voice, and I aspire to have a career as prosperous as hers. Naomi, whose clients include Rag & Bone and Proenza Schouler, was quoted in WWD from the Chictopia10 event.“There are so many different kinds of blogs. Personal style blogs, fashion news blogs, street photo blogs. It really is about designers seeing how important this is, and the ability to circulate this information so quickly is really important. They are starting to notice it. Streaming is huge. I see personal style blogs filling the role of the traditional stylist.”
