This week it’s not just about New York Fashion Week, it’s about the bloggers. We here at Flightpath are taking you behind-the-scenes of the beauty and fashion conferences this week. We sent our Social Media Intern to check out day two of the IFB conference.
As promised, our Social Media intern Beck will share her thoughts on the IFB conference. Take it away Beck!
Each year IFB holds a conference that brings together some of the most successful people in the fashion industry and the bloggers who write about fashion. It’s a two day event and as the lucky Flightpath intern I had the pleasure of attending the second day of the event!
This panel focused on turning your blog into a business. Some of the key points were:
- Be ok with risk
- Surround yourself with people who are passionate about the same thing you are
- Challenge yourself daily
Conferences can be fun too with everyday tips. Samantha Brown from Style to Hire showed us which pieces of clothing are essential to a complete closet!
Bloggers and writers tackled the topic of Bringing Bravery Back to Blogging. A few things they highlighted were:
- Blog like no one is watching
- Be aware that once you put yourself out there, there will be negative feedback and that’s okay
- Find fuel in the hate comments, don’t let them bring you down
I had the pleasure of meeting Iman! She is not only a gorgeous model
but a successful entrepreneur. Such an inspiration.
That concludes our adventures at the bigger, better and bolder IFB conferences. Next up is Lucky Magazine‘s LuckyFABB.
