You must've read about the unemployed twins from Ohio in this weekend's New York Times by now. If not, you can here, here or here. Anyway, this one's for them. On Wednesday, October 28th, Ladies Lotto, a networking group for professional women, is hosting a panel called Behind the Beast. A panel of experts, including the Editorial Director of Refinery29, the Fashion Editor of Self, a publicist, a trend forecaster and even an MTV VJ will talk about how to break into the industry, despite the tough economic times, and what to do once you're in. The moderated discussion, and the cocktails after, will give you a chance to ask questions of a pretty diverse group of women and gain some insight into both magazines and blogs, as well as the PR side of the industry. The event's at the Tribeca Grand; it's $15 and you have until October 27 to RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Don't Miss Our Next Panel Discussion Featuring Chris Benz, the Ladies of Dossier, and More!
Our series "How I'm Making It," which profiles up-and-coming fashion pioneers as they climb the industry ranks, has inspired and informed you. Especially those of you looking to break into fashion. And from now until Sunday, you can purchase tickets for basically the cost of a movie. Except promise this panel discussion will be far more helpful and useful than Water for Elephants or Scream 4 (though probably not as funny as Bridesmaids). Tickets to this one-time-only event are $19.95. But we're offering $5 off to those who sign up by Sunday, using promotional code 76LYFY. Sign up here now, as quantity is limited. In December, we hosted our first How I'm Making It panel discussion, which was such a success we're bringing it back. The latest installment of "How I'm Making It: What It Takes To Succeed In Fashion" will take place on May 9, 2011 from 7pm-8.30pm in the Cantor Film Center at NYU. This session's panelists are: Chris Benz (Fashion designer and Fashionista columnist!) Gayle Dizon (Dizon Inc., runway producer for Proenza Schouler, Thakoon, and Isaac Mizrahi) Cindy Krupp (Krupp Group, public relations for brands like Rachel Comey, Chris Benz, Lover) Katherine Krause (Editor of Dossier Magazine) Skye Parrott (Photographer and Creative Director of Dossier Magazine)
