Countdown to Fashion U

So I am literally marking X’s on my calendar as I anxiously wait for October 23rd, or in other words, the kick-off for Teen Vogue’s Fashion University 2009.

Last year I went and it was an amazing networking experience. I got to meet holy fashion designers and magazine editors right in the heart of New York City.

This year, there will be seminars featuring designers Kimora Lee Simmons (the designer for Baby Phatt), Derek Lam, Thakoon, Cynthia Rowley, Rebecca Minkoff and so many others.

I already signed up for the seminars I want to attend and I am so eager to meet Eric Daman, the costume designer for the hit show Gossip Girl. I also get to listen to Frances Pennington, a marketer for Juicy Couture which for me is a HUGE deal because Juicy Couture is one of my favorite brands. In addition to getting a tour of Teen Vogue offices, I also get to listen to fashion & style bloggers.

And, to celebrate beforehand, Juicy Couture is hosting a special retail kick-off event at their flagship store on 5th Avenue. H&M is also hosting a special retail event the following evening.

So now the most important question is, what should I wear?
