Last night I had the opportunity to meet many of my fellow fashion bloggers at the Independent Fashion Blogger’s Dress Up Soiree in NYC! This is IFB’s second NYFW event, and it kicked off with a blogger panel discussion, moderated by Jordana of Clutch22. Evolving Influence Panelists included Susie Lau from Style Bubble, Gala Darling, Wendy Brandes from Wendy Brandes Jewelery, Jessica Schroeder from What I Wore, Geri Hirsch from Because I’m Addicted, Helen Zhu from Chictopia, Erika Miller SEO Manager of Elle.com, Crosby Noricks from PR Couture, and Tricia Royal from Wardrobe Remix. The venue was packed (they weren’t expecting such a great turnout) so it was tough to hear all of the panelists’ responses, but Susie and Geri gave informative answers to the audience when asked about how bloggers can get more viewers, their thoughts on “copycat” issues, which blogs they frequent, whether they feel pressured by pr companies, etc. After the panel discussion, it was time to mix and mingle, and we all had a blast getting to meet each other in person – and of course show off our outfits! Now here are the photos!
