Macy’s Philadelphia Fashion and Design Networking Event

24 Oct

I attended the Philadelphia Fashion and Design event last week, hosted by The Enterprise Center. The panel included successful designers and fashion bloggers. It was inspiring to be amongst other creative professionals who talked about their experiences, on their way to the top of their game. Attendees were able to network with others in the audience and the panel.

Each presenter talked about how they became known in the fashion industry. One of the designers had her first shot with the great Patty LaBelle, now she is designing for people attending the Oscars. Their was also a fashion blogger who travels the world and has a dual citizenship in the US and UK. A former architect on the panel began designing clutches through freelancing and found that he grew a passion for it, once he got laid off from his job. He advised us to find creative ways to make your company a success.

This event was held at Macy’s  so you know it was only right that we were able to get a tour of the Macy’s incubator located in Center City Phila. For those who are not familiar with the Macy’s incubator, it is an organization that provides the tools and materials needed for small business owners in Philadelphia. To get accepted, you would need to have consumers (even with a small amount) and you would need to complete their application. I recommend contacting Macy’s, if you are interested.

Below are pictures from the event including the Macy’s incubator tour.
