Happy Wednesday! I hope your having a nice week so far! I went to Fashion360 Conference a couple weeks ago. This one day event had influential fashion industry experts at the conference as panelist.The conference was packed with information and allowed the attendees to be broken into different groups and the panelists were asked Q&A questions from the attendees. The two groups I choose to attend were Business of Fashion Design Breakout Session and Business of Styling Breakout Session.

In the beginning of the conference was motivational speaker and Founder and Executive Director of Ladies America Lindsey Mask. Her advice to us were topics that included  Personal Branding , Your Brand Plan, and Six P's of building your brand. The main thing that stood out was allow yourself to make accessible goals that your able to achieve. Identify your passion and to take into account of what your doing or what you need to change that's not working. It's important to network you'll meet people that will help you through your success. Also, feel empowered and ask questions...Always remember to be bold and speak up!

For the breakout session for Fashion Design the panelists consisted of Q&A questions such as 
Q; How Finances fail in fashion?
A: Make something that values your time. Taking into account  of how much the value of your product is worth. Set the right price that values your actual products/services. Treat fashion as a business and all the areas that you need to focus for your product.
Q: Do you think that you need a investors or sponsors?
A: You have to show and bring to the table that one will believe in you to invest. Also, test your product with others you know who own a business. This way they can give you an effective feedback.

Q: What is your brand name in one sentence?
A: Make a memorable design that no one will forget.

Latin_e covered the fashion 360 conference, did a fabulous job (oh yeah that's me on the right paying close attention!) These panelist were very entertaining, but they kept it real. You have to do what your passionate about. Joey Wolffer started her business by driving around her fashion mobile truck. Now she tours the world to different cities to sell timeless and wearable pieces. The key to her success is her keen sense of style and the unique way of running her business. Lastly, the Off the Cuff Founder and Editor in Chief Chris Hogan. He understands what men style is to be. He has achieved that with his own personal style, which has allowed him to make pieces that can set the average man apart. He dressed so cool at the conference only he can pull off 'Off The Cuff' look! 

Cameron Silver star of Bravo show Dukes of Melrose and Keynote speaker for the Conference. Also, Cameron Silver- Owner of a luxury vintage boutique located in Los Angeles, California.He's well-known for his runway trends from New York and Paris that have appeared on the Red Carpet. Most definitely has an eye for fashion, sought out person to dress A-list celebrities, which has made him to be a household name. He gave us some insight on how he started it wasn't easy with only a few people by his side. His drive, charisma made him go after his dream!
