It’s been a little over two weeks since Chictopia.10 and we are still reeling from the monumental success of the event. For those of you who couldn’t make it out to New York to join us this time, here is a little recap!
It was a day of fashion, open dialogue, debate and new friends. The conference brought together Chictopia bloggers, CEO’s, brand representatives, fashion journalists, and fashion enthusiasts from all over the world. Our panelists spoke candidly on staying relevant in the blogging world, the democratization of fashion and tackling the ever-changing social media landscape.
Our Twitter exploded with in the moment updates and tweets with quotes that resonated with the audience. Some of the most tweeted quotes were: “You are your brand!”,
“Blogging doesn’t stop after you’ve published your post. You have to advertise it through social media to gain traffic, e.g. twitter, fb, chictopia, etc.” and “Bloggers want personal connections with brands”.
As the conference wore on, guests dined on a gourmet lunch, while enjoying killer music, an IPad giveaway courtesy of The Find free goodies from Kmart and a photobooth courtesy of ModCloth. Guests were also treated to Boy Meets Girl goody bags filled with treats from American Apparel, The Find and Purple Lab NYC. Panelists were also gifted exclusive packages from NeedSupply.
After the panels, the fashion show began and we will be the first to say that all of the designers set the room on fire with their innovation and originality. Alyssa Bird showed off a more grown up collection with sophisticated silhouettes, a muted color palette and touches of her signature girlish whimsy. Triskaidekaphobia presented their delightful new jewelry collection inspired by time, while C/FAN took us back into the future with her sexy sheer designs and graphic photo inspired prints.
To top off what was an already amazing day, Juicy Couture hosted the Chictopia.10 afterparty at their flagship store in Soho. Attendees sipped on Mango cocktails and champagne, munched on colorful little macaroons and enjoyed the company of some very Juicy boys. The DJ spun some amazing tunes, while everyone shopped at a 30% discount. It was the cherry on top of a deliciously satisfying Sunday (pun intended).
