Fashion U recap, part 2

January 11, 2011

Ok I’m getting back at the recap’s of my New york trip!!

Teen Vogue’s Fashion U had so many amazing “classes” to choose from this year, but I was really happy with the ones I picked! I was lucky enough to attend the editor’s panel, the world of fashion blogger’s, the Intern Queen and a D.I.Y.  session with Erica Domesek.

In the Editors Panel, the Teen Vogue editing team was there including Amy Astley and Eva Chen. They gave us great advice on how to succeed in the fashion industry.  It truly isn’t all about glamor and parties, and like Amy said “fashion is a real industry”!!. It was also good to hear what they look for when hiring interns, which motivates me to be as well rounded as I can to hopefully stand out. I also love the amount of passion people have for their job when they are in the fashion industry. Eva put it best by saying that “you can make whatever you love into a career” , which is how I feel about visual merchandising.

The next “class” I attended was lead by some top fashion bloggers I was so lucky to be in the same room with! Jane and Judy Aldrige were there, along with Street Peeper and Hanneli.  They had some really great down to earth advice about blogging, which is why their  blogs are so amazing.

I loved their shoes, of course, so I tried to take some decent pictures of them.

The session was truly inspiring, as I am always trying to be a better blogger. And my favorite part was getting a chance to meet with Jane and Judy Aldrige

Now, this was only the morning. I didn’t want to take my lunch break that day! It was the best “school” I had ever been in. There is still more to come about this amazing experience in the fashion world, in another post.


Fashion U recap, part 1

November 3, 2010

This October I had the pleasure of attending Teen Vogue’s Fashion University weekend in NYC. It was an amazing weekend that was a really valeuble and fun experience.

Some of my favorite parts of the weekend included Vogue editor Anna Wintour’s key note speech

she had many slides to show us as she talked about her career, and interestingly enough this was her first cover for American Vogue

this is a picture of a photo shoot about Spider Man the musical!

this is a shot from the December Vogue where they modeled this shoot after a famous photo that has been a huge inspiration in the fashion world

finally at the end she took a few questions along with Amy Astley, editor of Teen Vogue. It was really great listening to Anna’s impressive career. My favorite quotes from her include “bring some intelligence to what you do”, “you can never understand the great public”, “Vogue her”(when talking about Blake Lively), and “you don’t start at the bottom, you start from the beginning” from Amy Astley.

After the speach I was heading down to go to my first “class” and who did I run into? Eva Chen, editor of the beauty section in Teen Vogue! I used to love reading her blog on and I now follow her on twitter. She is so cute and fun so it was a real pleasure to meet her. Plus her outfit was co cute!!

That was the first part of my weekend, more details are to come on the other amazing “classes” I attended.
