After the success of FashionCampNY, this two day conference hits LA to teach the benefits of technology to fashion's rising stars.
Fashion and technology. Two things that don't seem to go together, right? Wrong so wrong! And FashionCampLA is going to show you why, as this innovative event pulls the dazzling world of fashion into the twenty-first century.
The face of fashion is changing. The divide between designer and consumer is shrinking as fashion becomes an exciting community in which everyone can participate. Creating a stellar line in your apartment? You need to get that line out there so everyone can see how fabulous it is, you need to sell! Got things to say about the different lines and trends? You need to be heard! Technology is giving everyone a role to play in the industry. The internet is creating a venue for independent designers to set up shop, for those with opinions to develop blogs and become voices that other fashionistas turn to. But, a lot of us don't even know where to begin! And until now, there hasn't been one place where style mavens and mavens in training can come together to share, learn, and build the foundation for a successful fashion endeavor.
FashionCampLA will be a revolutionary event, one that invites all fashion enthusiasts and experts to present and share their knowledge and success. Industry professionals, members of the independent fashion community and of the vintage community, Los Angeles brands, technology start-ups, style bloggers, writers, and journalists, stylists, costume designers, and fashion students are invited to present at FashionCampLA.
Everyone will share their expertise while learning from the expertise of others. The event will leave participants armed for a thriving journey into fashion using technology and modern tools like social media. After these two days, you will no longer see fashion and technology as two separate industries. Instead, you will see how they work in hand in hand to revolutionize fashion, open the industry up to everyone with drive and talent, and create amazing possibilities. FashionCampLA is the first step. Learn, network, share, teach, and get involved in this thrilling new era of fashion.
FashionCampLA will take place May 15th and May 16th, 2010 at the California Market Center. If you've got something to say about fashion, technology, or the merging of the two, sign up to present. FashionCampLA wants to hear from you! Whether you want to present or focus on learning as an attendee, stay tuned in to www.la.fashioncamp.org for more details and updates. FashionCampNYC was a smash hit, and now it's time for the West Coast to jump in, learn, and have fun!
