Nuffnang Australia this week launched their inaugural conference and meetup for fashion bloggers, Nuffnang Fashionopolis, with a list of high profile speakers including Phoebe Montague, Patty Huntington, Philip Boon and Jenny Bannister. The program includes extensive networking opportunities and an education component, and is the first industry event of its kind in Australia.
Nuffnang Fashionopolis, to be held on Saturday 12 May at Thousand Pound Bend, will be hosted by one of Melbourne’s premier fashion bloggers, Phoebe Montague, better known to the fashion community as Lady Melbourne.
The industry event will also play host to Fashion Torque, Australia’s only live fashion chat show established by Philip Boon and Jenny Bannister in 2010, at which industry stalwarts Patty Huntington and Sarah Gale will be guests.
The Nuffnang Fashionopolis schedule will educate up and coming, and established, fashion bloggers on the best ways to brand blogs to ensure cut through in a crowded space, how to use social media to best advantage and the importance of great photography and original content. Further learning opportunities will be provided through a panel session featuring Montague, David Krupp from Nuffnang and others.
Part conference and part networking event, Nuffnang Fashionopolis will give bloggers a chance to hear from the professionals, as well as give them the chance to speak personally with the best in the business.
‘The opportunities to meet and speak with these icons of the Australian fashion industry makes this a must attend event for anyone in fashion blogging’ David Krupp, Country Manager of Nuffnang Australia, said.
Montague, whose blog is one of the success stories of Australian fashion blogging, is thrilled to be hosting the inaugural event, ‘I’ve always been about community with my blogging exploits whether it’s organising dinners and coffee for bloggers, through to teaching how to blog at the CAE here in Melbourne. I’ve not been in a position to gather bloggers from all over Australia together until now however so I’m brimming with excitement for what Nuffnang Fashionopolis will provide on the day.’
Tickets to Nuffnang Fashionopolis, presented by Sunglass Hut Inner Circle, are now available through nuffnangfashionopolis.com.au.
