Yesterday me and one of my best friends attended the World Fashion Today LIVE Talkshow in the World Fashion Centre located in Amsterdam. It was my first time ever being in there and it felt so awesome. Various interesting guest speakers, all with an affinity with fashion, gave their two cents on the changes in retail.
I was especially intrigued by Linda Tol, a very successful fashion blogger turned trendwatcher & retail buyer. She mentioned something about having to travel to Milan, London and some place else for fashion shows and events, all this month! I definitely want a future life like that. Another speaker that was the most interesting to me was Jos Bles from Jos Bles Fashion. He mentioned how essential it is for retailers to focus more on providing consumers with a positive shopping experience. Nowadays more and more people shop online, but often consumers want that psychical experience with a brand or product.The talkshow went on for about an hour and I definitely feel like I got a little (or a lot) wiser. It was crucial information I need, especially because I want to start my own business in fashion as well. It was good to get insight from people who've been doing it successfully for years. Afterwards everyone was able to network and enjoy a few drinks and delicious finger food in the Fashion Café.
