Fashion + Networking = Open Source Fashion

Hi everyone, I am happy that I attended the first meetup for Open Source fashion in NYC at the WIX Lounge. There were tons of people who working in the Fashion and Beauty industry. From designers to blogger to Pr execs, everyone was there to network and learn from each other. I got to meet some really great people at the event. I have to say the OS Fashion is one stylish group.



You probably wondering how I found out about this group, well I found this group on meetup.com. If you are looking to meet new people or to just network, than check out meetup.com. They are full of group in your area. This was Open Source Fashion's first meetup. Which was great because At the meetupHaute Pr CEO - Robin Kassner and FashionStake Founder & President Vivian Weng talked about the fashion and pr industry. These ladies gave some great insight to many independent fashion designers, entrepreneurs and bloggers.




Here is Robin Kassner, CEO of Haute Pr talking about her company and some tips for all of us trying to make it in the fashion industry.


FashionStake Founder & President Vivian Weng answering some question from Pavan Bahl, Organizer of Open Source Fashion group on meetup.com. Pavan is starting his own footwear company and had tons of questions for the PR powerhouses.


After the discussion, everyone was talking and exchanging business cards. Networking is key in this industry.There were tons of folk at this meet up from models to bloggers to designers. It was great to see so many different people involved in the fashion and beauty industry.

Everyone was very friendly and wanted to learn more about each other and the industry. I meet a few great people at the Wix Lounge in NYC. Until next time
