    Oh! Congrats on the second year!

    I wish I could make it but I’m stuck in San Francisco.

  2. Krista

    Oh it sounds like another fabulous one! So sad I’m even further from NYC this year. Will enjoy the coverage.

  3. Mallory

    Wish I could be there too! 🙁 NYC is too far sometimes… (Actually JetBlue has direct flights from here to there, but that still begs questions of where to stay, etc. My NYC friends moved back down here!)

  4. eli

    This looks amazing yet again! Makes me wish I hadnt just taken a bunch of time off so I could go to this!

  5. fshnonmymind

    You don’t know how exciting this is for me!!! I’m putting in my request for the day off now (fingers crossed my boss approves). I saw pictures from last year and it would so much fun to be apart of the festivities this year.

  6. Vanessa

    Sounds like terrific seminars happening & a great way for bloggers to connect. Wish the conference wasn’t so far away ;(

  7. Steff

    Now this is the announcement I’ve been waiting for. I booked my trip to New York in February, hoping that this would be scheduled during the same week. Yay! Is anyone else going to be at Fashion’s Night Out: The Show on the 7th?

  8. Kristina

    It’s times like these I hate that I live in Texas. Grr!! Want to go SO BAD! I feel like you are my friends and it’s awkward that we haven’t met in person yet. LOL

  9. AngieMontreal

    Seriously contemplating jumping in my car and heading down for a couple of days…I need my NY fix and this is the perfect reason to make the trip!

  10. J

    This looks really cool!!! I would really like to go….but I’m only a freshman in high school…would I be too young? Is there anyone else attending who is 14 or 15?

  11. Julie-Ann

    Its sounds fun and interesting. Wish I didn’t live on the opposite side of the hemisphere cause I’d be there in a heartbeat!! 🙁

  12. Closet Fashionista

    I want to go so bad, it would be my first event as a blogger! But I have to work…but maybe they won’t need me and I can go last minute…unlikely :/

  13. Kara

    I really wish I could go to this! I think it would be really interesting and helpful. I’ve reached such a lull in my blogging! I hate that I have to go to work that week b/c its like I have this job to support myself but it means I can’t go to fashion week for my passion! UGH!
    Oh well! I hope you guys have a great time!

  14. Kim

    I love New York and I would love to attend, but unfortunately I live in Belgium 🙁 Damn! It sounds like a really great day.

  15. chandraisgreat

    I ma so happy to say I am going to be attending this year!

  16. Jinna Boo

  17. Carlis

    WOW!! what an amazing line up! sad i wont get to NYC until friday morning but might have to make it happen! worth the try!

  18. The Well-Appointed Catwalk

    I was so excited to go this year, and now I find out it’s on Rosh Hashanah. 🙁 Does this effect anyone else? I’m not even religious, but it’s just one of those days my family won’t let me off the hook. So bummed!

  19. MadInga

  23. Tykeia

    I’m an up and coming blogger and was sent the information on the Evolving Conference and I feel it’d be a great experience for me. Is the event open to those who don’t blog about fashion exclusively? Thanks

  25. Noorindah

    Hi there, since I’m not in NY at the moment, I would love to access the livestream for the event. I went through the link and came to the payment page but it was blank… How do I sign up for livestream access?

  26. disjacs

    I am not able to attend conference. Will the presentations/information be available afterwards as a download or something?

  27. Linda

    This conference sounds GREAT!!!!! And I would love to attend but cannot take the time off from work. Are any of these lectures going to be rebroadcast on this web site at a later date? I’m happy to pay for that opportunity!!!

  28. Stylonista

    OH NO! I went to register this afternoon and it must be sold out. the wait list icon is on. I wishing on the moon for a set of tickets. So looking forward to it and now I am in limbo. So much for waiting for the last day of registering. :\

  29. Lindsay

    Did this just sell out? It says I’m on a wait list…what are the chances a ticket will really become available?

  30. Howard Slaughter III

  32. guccidiscounting

    I went to the IFB Emerging Influence Conference where I heard from Mattias Swenson from Bloglovin’, Phil Oh from Streetpeeper, Yuri Lee

  33. Erkennungsmarken

    Thank you a lot for giving everyone an extraordinarily spectacular possiblity to check tips from this blog. It is often so kind and as well , full of a good time for me personally and my office mates to visit the blog nearly three times in one week to study the new secrets you have got. And definitely, I’m just at all times pleased concerning the impressive concepts you give. Selected two areas on this page are certainly the finest we’ve ever had.

  34. fff

    Your paper really is helpful to me. You have different opinions in a similar things. The paper you have issued is what My group is thinking about, so I hope that you can issue more great papers like that. I will continue to focus on you.

  35. P

    Nice to see them still going. This post brings back memories, I tried to find a recorded video of the live stream but couldn’t… does anyone know where I can find it?
