If consuming all the #content Fashion Week has to offer — from reviews to interviews to street style — made you wonder how all these people got where they are, then you're not going to want to miss FashionistaCon. Our fifth annual, day-long "How to Make It in Fashion" conference is coming to New York's The Whitby on Friday, November 3, 2017.

Every year, our editors bring together the best and brightest in the industry — most of whom you've likely read about on this very website — to divulge their secrets to success and discuss the real ins and outs of making it in the fashion world. This year is no exception with speakers including Prabal Gurung, Sarah Rutson, Rebecca Minkoff, Phillip Picardi and many more.

Along with a full day of career-focused panels and keynote speakers, we'll also be bringing back our popular mentoring sessions, where you'll get the chance to have a one-on-one conversation with someone who has succeeded in your chosen field. (And this time, they'll be scheduled during designated breaks in the agenda so you won't miss a single panel or keynote.)

As always, our goal is that you leave the conference with useful advice that'll help you land that internship, job or promotion — and that you'll make some good connections. (We guarantee you won't be disappointed with the swag bag, either.)

Tickets are on sale now for $279. Our conferences always sell out in advance, and mentoring sessions are limited, so be sure to reserve your spot ASAP. And, check out the agenda here, which we'll continue updating as more speakers are confirmed.
