I’m speaking at the Queen’s Business Forum on the Fashion Industry

Queen's Business Forum on the Fashion Industry

I’ve been asked to speak at the Queen’s Business Forum on the Fashion Industry conference.  Since I get a kick out of speaking engagements I accepted.

Queen’s Business Forum on the Fashion Industry (Q’BFFI) is the only conference of its kind in Canada. This unique student-run conference is now in its 5th year, and has sparked interest from some of the most influential people in the fashion industry. Taking place on October 17th and 18th 2009, Q’BFFI will further its reputation as one of the most innovative conferences at Queen’s University.

The theme of this year’s conference is global interaction in the world of fashion, focusing on the changes that have affected the fashion industry as a result of globalization and a growing world economy.

So, I’ll be taking the VIA to Kingston (I haven’t been there in 10 years)  to talk about fashion blogging and my own experiences running I want – I got.  PodCamp and FashionCamp were my other speaking gigs and I didn’t prepare much for them.  This isn’t my course of action.  I will plan and be reasonably prepared. 🙂

Q’BFFI accepts delegates from all universities nationwide and internationally. Find out more about attending on the Q’BFFI site.

  1. I just wanted to say that I was at the conference and I loved hearing you speak! It was amazing that you took time out of your busy schedule to talk to students about your experiences (and show off those amazing Alexander McQueen shoes). I will definitely be checking out your posts on upcoming fashion week shows.. and I, too, was completely enthralled with this season’s collections from McQueen and Victor&Rolf. By far the most creative. I love your site, and thank you once again for being an inspiration to a lot of aspiring fashionistas.
