THE WWDMAGIC TRADESHOW had finally started...
and I had a packed schedule with panels to participate in...
My first panel was Discovery Sessions..where I introduced items that I found on the floor..
It was my first time to even explore the floor but these were the items I immediately fell in love with!
On the panel with me was (L-R) Enocha Tellus from Locks and Trinkets, Sheryl Luke from Walk in Wonderland, and it was moderated by Chanelle Laurence from The Penelope Times
coat from Dear Creatures
Then later this day I had to prepare for TOKYO POP which I was a part of with Misha. We all wore a piece of Misha's wig collection or accessories PLUMB.
Tokyo Pop was moderated by Wendy Bendoni
and Gina participated too!
I was SUPER NERVOUS...
how do I look with blonde hair?
I am chubby bunny Michelle also partipated!
So much fun (but I was super nervous!!!)!!!
anypoo..the next day, I participated in an eco discussion..
I learned about Indigenous, an eco-friendly and fair trade brand.
these were my favorite items from this brand.
I had to go on a scavenger hunt to find eco friendly brands and fell in love with this knit tank top from Eileen Fisher.
These bracelets from Good Work(s) Make a Difference are also organic..
and here is our panel..
Again, very nervous...I am not so savy about Eco-friendly manufacturing so I had to be honest about it..however during the scavenger hunt to find brands to introduce in the panel, I had interesting discussions with people and learned a lot about how important it is to go eco-.. I didn't know that fashion was ranked as the #2 cause of pollution in the world. It made me a little sad..
Matt Reynolds (far left) is the co-founder of Indegenious and was leading this panel.
He was such a friendly guy and was so positive and optimistic about this discussion.
Later this day, I was involved in another panel to share items that I thought would be trending for A/W.
I focused on accessories this time...
I discovered this brand called PEPALOVES that had everything that I wanted!!!
I also discovered these sunglasses made from bamboo (environmental friendly!) in the emerging accessory designers corner! I had Margie give them a try.
The 2 bags in the back are from PEPALOVES , the sunglasses are PANDA and of course my hot pink bag from POPMOLLY!
I had sooo much fun with these girls and am sad that I didn't get to meet them properly the first day!!
after this I got photo snapped!
Kelsi, she put this all together!!! お疲れさま！
gah, anyone who knows me KNOWS that I hate to get fashion snapped!!!
Thank goodness I was comfortable in what I wore this day. heehee..
