    Hey Jennine!
    How do we RSVP?

  2. What a great line up! Thanks for taking all the time to put something like this together. Is there any chance of this being taped for those who are unable to attend in person? If I am unable to attend, I would be happy to pay for a copy of the taped version. Just let me know. Thanks!

  19. Retro Chick says:

    I like living in the UK, but I wish I was rich enough to hop on a plane for NYFW, the events are great for IFB. I hope maybe in the future I could help organise something similar for LFW here.

    I’ll happily make a donation, though, even though I can’t attend! Can’t guarantee it’ll be $20 though as I am deeply poor! :D

    Aaahhh! I RSVP’d and have like 5 other people coming to this very knowledgeable event. Thanks to dreamsequins for the heads up! I will be in attendance. Happy Fashion Wednesday. Blessings.

  21. I am so excited. I have already RSVPed and I am waiting on my confirmation email. I have donated my $20 for the event.
    This is GOING TO BE GREAT. I am from GA and I will already be there for the Chictopia10 conference and when I saw this, it was surely a change of plans. I hope I can secure a spot for all of the seminars.

    How long will the confirmation email take to come through? Just wanted to know, so that I can make my travel arrangements?

    Thank you and can’t wait to see everyone there. :)
