In the first two days, I have heard from other fashion bloggers, independent designers, and professionals from the big brands, speak about their experiences. It's been a blast! And not to mention that I'm working on my fashion brand project that the New York campers are completing this week! But the best part, is that I can send my project in to present just like the other fashionistas and fashionistos attending; it's just like I'm there with them.
Even though I'm a virtual camper, I have gotten to experience the full blown thing. I logged on the first day with a virtual welcome just as the others received. It makes me want to be in the heart of the big city as well.
So far, I've learned a lot about the behind-the-scenes of the industry. One part of FashionCampNYC that I thoroughly enjoy is hearing the backgrounds of the speakers. It's fun to hear about where they came from and how they got to where they are now! Some I can even relate to; it's a reassuring feeling.
