On Saturday we attended the iFabbo Social Media conference. It truly was the perfectly put together ensemble of fashion, technology, and blogging experts. The day was separated out into panels discussing issues from PR, legal concerns, and the future of fashion. Our very own VP of marketing, Oliver Deighton, was on the panel about monetization.
On show were some of the best shoes I have ever seen in San Francisco (people claim the hills stop high heel wearing – not for these fashionistas!) and the participants were by far the best dressed group of people I have ever seen at a conference. (If you are interested in the styles rocked – check out #iFabboSFCon and the set of ‘what I wore’ tweets circulating).
Even if you wouldn’t class yourself as a fashionista, the day was full of really useful blogging advice. Here are our top a-ha moments and quotes from the day:
