I did it when I went to Vancouver and I did it again when I went to Melbourne in March. I contacted as many bloggers and just generally any person I could find working in the fashion industry about catching up over brunch. The result was 22 amazing attendees including fashion bloggers, pr creatives, photographers and make up artists. Together we made #Bloggersxvamff.
Thank you so much to all the new Melbourne friends I have for supporting this idea and attending. Also to Crabapple Kitchen in Hawthorn for hosting us. We squeezed into their tiny balcony area at the back, and like true fashionistas, we sure did a good job of taking over the place in our Saturday best outfits and getting along like crazy fireflies with our chats and of course selfies haha.
The reason I organised this event was to meet like minded people who are passionate about working hard to establish their own blogs as well as learn off and support each other. This was all at the same time as having a good laugh and making hopefully life long friends.
I honestly want to say you each individually inspire me and I cannot wait to come back. As long as we all continue to do what we do with our hearts then we will make a difference not only to our own lives (we’re all obviously obsessed with fashion), but to those around us who want to be part of the industry. We all have side jobs and other friends and hobbies in our lives, but working to have your own business is pure determination and out of complete passion. Thank you so so so so much everyone. To everyone reading this blog, I’d love if you could please take the time to check out these wonderful creatives who attended:
