Our fifth annual "How to Make It in Fashion" conference (also known as FashionistaCon) is almost here — mark your calendar for Nov. 3 — and this year we've made it a priority to beef up our lineup with designers, editors and executives and more who are authorities in their fields within the industry. That includes a panel of the fashion industry's best and brightest who are forging a path when it comes to serving the plus size community.

We'll be chatting with veterans of the field about "Why It's Time for the Fashion Industry to Catch Up with the Plus Size Market." We've tapped Chromat CEO Becca McCharen-Tran, who founded the fashion line in 2010 with the goal of including everyone in the fashion industry, not just the lithe and rich. Lane Bryant (and sister brand Catherines) has been a leader in the plus-size industry for decades, which is why we've asked EVP and CMO Brian Beitler to participate. Customer-favorite Eloquii found a second life when fans demanded its return after former parent brand The Limited closed it; CEO Mariah Chase will be on hand to discuss that groundswell movement. While they may be new players in the space, 11 Honoré aims to bring luxury fashion to the plus customer, which is why we've asked founder and CEO Patrick Herning to participate in our panel. From high fashion to fast fashion, our crew of experts has the sector covered, and they'll be sharing their intel on why it's time to stop ignoring this important customer. 

If you want to hear their insights, and even get the chance to ask our panel your questions, get your tickets today, right here.
