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.
