Description

April 23 - 29 is Fashion Revolution Week.

In an age when "likes" and followers can equal dollars and cents, and trends fade faster than it takes to scroll by, how do influencers and brands stay relevant (and in business) while still promoting responsible consumption?

We're thrilled to open the dialogue with a panel event featuring four prominent Edmonton online fashion influencers. They will share their insights, observations and the struggles and opportunities in keeping up with the demand of creating new and engaging content, while also being conscious of the ethical dangers of fast fashion and overconsumption. The panel will be moderated by Janis Galloway, Director of Publicity Room, a PR agency specializing in promoting fashion, beauty and lifestyle brands.

Panelists include:
- Alyssa Lau CEO/Founder of New Classics Studios and Occasional blogger at Ordinary People
- Emily Holloway of Sparkle, Lace & Sequins
- Lyndsey Smith of Over My Styled Body
- Marielle Terhart, Photographer and Social Media Consultant

*Small bites, refreshments and fabulous company included. ______________________________________________________________________________
