So, I am really geeked!
I have been invited to cover MAGIC Las Vegas (August 22nd-14th) tobring YOU the latest trends, street style, and fashion events from a plus perspective! I am really geeked as I have NEVER been to MAGIC! I have always planned on going and life always happened, but THIS August, I am headed along with a few other select bloggers to Las Vegas to cover….. FASHION!
My Mind is racing:
- What to wear?
- Which designers to see?
- Which events to go to?
- What seminars to attend?
- What to wear? (Did I say that already?)
My mind is racing with excitement, anticipation, and complete excitement! Now if you do not know, MAGIC Las Vegas is THE fashion tradeshow to take place TWICE a year!
What is MAGIC:
Literally, THE Business of Fashion.
MAGIC is where the international community of apparel, accessories and footwear professionals trades information, previews trends, builds business and shops fashion unlike anywhere else in the industry. Each February and August, tens of thousands of attendees from over 80 countries meet more than 5,000 emerging-to-established brands to spark the strategic connections that become the relationships of tomorrow.
By combining incomparable commercial potential, creative inspiration and connection opportunities, MAGIC has become the most influential force in fashion. With an average of nearly $200 million in per-day order volume and 85% of the top 50 retailers in attendance, more business is done at MAGIC than any other fashion retail trade event—making MAGIC the definitive platform for conducting the business of fashion.
Seriously, I am on a mission:
To find the newest and latest in fashion that caters to the Curvy Fashionista! Brands that deliver style, substance, and size for us is NUMBER 1 on my list! Well… next to identifying trends and new designers to watch who influence the rest of fashion as well! ELATION!
There are sooo many places to get lost in at MAGIC! Some of MY favorite stops on my list:
WWDMAGIC: showcases more than 2,000 emerging to established labels across every price-point and trend. Presented in collaboration with Women’s Wear Daily, WWDMAGIC features expert fashion forecasts, exclusive networking events, cutting-edge seminars and all the styles of the season.
FN Platform: MAGIC and Footwear News showcase SHOE HEAVEN! With over 1,500 new and emerging labels, FN PLATFORM delivers the shoes for EVERY lifestyle. You will find me HERE!
Oh! And I cannot leave out Pool Trade Show and Street Unlimited! I will be stopping by there too!
WHAT do I wear?
Now that I have let the cat out of the bag, I now have to go on a hunt to figure out what I am going to wear, as IT WILL BE hot in Las Vegas in August! Seriously, with an average high of 103 and lows of 74…. Uhm…. I need something BOTH fashionable and functional! AND I am going to ROCK THE BELLS!
*faints* Raekwon, Ghostface, AND MOBB DEEP! *faints*
I am alive… Okay, so make sure you stay tuned in, because I will be giving quite a few updates as I prepare to head to MAGIC!
If you are a brand going and want to meet up, please do NOT HESITATE to email me to link up in Vegas!
