I’ve kept my eyes peeled for Fashionista’s next event since I attended their How to Make it in Fashion conference last fall.
On April 27, Garance Doré—blogger, illustrator, photographer and author—will be Fashionista’s guest speaker for their upcoming NYC meet-up.
Doré is a part of the “first wave” of successful fashion bloggers to truly run with blogs. An established style icon and digital media maven, Doré continues to bring glamour, charm and humor to loyal her audience with the help of a full-time staff and guest contributors.
First wave bloggers like Doré have shaped the fashion industry and the greater digital landscape as we know it today—a global platform that values beautiful content, audience engagement and authenticity. Other bloggers including Scott Schuman of The Sartorialist (2005), Leandra Medine of Man Repeller (2009) and Nicole Warne of Gary Pepper Girl (2009) also fall into this category.
