Our How to Make It in Fashion Conference is coming to New York on June 27 at the High Line Hotel, and we're excited to be bringing you guys some of the best and brightest in the fashion business to share their tips for making it in the industry.
We've got an amazing lineup. The morning starts with "Meet the Editors-in-Chief," a panel hosted by our editor in chief Lauren Indvik. It features some of the top editors in the business, including Robbie Meyers of Elle, Ariel Foxman of InStyle, and Amy Astley of Teen Vogue.
Up next is the panel "So You Want to Work in Tech?" Lauren Indvik will chat with Alisa Gould-Simon, co-ceo of Pose, Heather Park, digital media director at NARS, Ashley Bryan, and cmo of Ippolita about navigating the tech world at fashion and beauty companies.
Our editor at large, Lauren Sherman, will sit down with DKNY PR Girl, aka Aliza Licht, senior vice president of communications at Donna Karan International. Set to release her first book in 2015, she'll be offering her candid advice on how to climb your way up the fashion food chain.
"Why It’s a Great Time to Be a Young Designer," moderated by our senior editor Alyssa Vingan, features JoBeth Tananbaun, director, NYC Fashion Production Fund; Johanna Stout, professional development manager, CFDA; Jarrad Clark, global creative director, IMG; Shira Sue Carmi, founder, Launch Collective; Misha Nonoo, designer, Nonoo. They'll talk about the difficulties of launching your own label and where young designers can find support.
Cheryl Wischhover, Fashionista's beauty editor at large, moderates "The Business of Beauty," a panel featuring Britt Aboutaleb, multimedia director for Allure, Gregg Refrew, ceo and founder of Beauty Counter, Patti Pao, ceo and founder of Restorsea, and Stephanie March and Rebecca Perkins, founders of Rouge NY.
The day wraps up with Lauren Sherman chatting with designer Jessie Randall of cool-girl accessories label Loeffler Randall. Jessie will share the story of her quest for the perfect shoe, and how Loeffler Randall's classic styles -- from the Matilde boot to the Rider bag -- have become a fashion editor closet staple.
