MAGIC MARKET WEEK Day 2: WWDMagicThursday, October 10, 2013
The whole reason I ended up at Magic Market Week in the first place was a result of entering a blogger contest to cover the tradeshow WWDMagic. I did not win the contest, but we were offered press passes to still come to Magic on our own paying our own fare and housing....It took me all of 2 seconds to decide to go! This is definitely my YOLO (You only live once) and I was there. As you can imagine, there was a lot going on at the tradeshow run in partnership with Women's Wear Daily (WWD). WWDMagic covers women's fashion, & apparel in every category possible. Unfortunately I managed to miss every fashion show that was going on inside WWDMagic with trying to make it to all the other tradeshows and seminars, but I was able to catch up with the bloggers who were picked to cover magic and say hi! I made some new blogger connections and returned later in the day to listen to Kelsi of Style Smith Online's chat with Joyce Azria, Creative Director of BCBGeneration. After her talk, the team at BCBGeneration held a private party for the bloggers upstairs in the skybox above WWDMagic. I admit, I felt pretty cool! See my post tomorrow for the BCBGeneration party.

I roamed over to the area belong to the Accessories Council, as I was curious about this group, and what they did. Though one of the directors of the Accessories Council wasn't there at the time, I chatted with a few of the designers showing. The Accessories Council has over 190 companies and organizations belonging to their group. Their main goal is to increase consumer awareness on fashion accessories and support of fashion design students, and accessory brands.
