Creating Opportunities for Fashion Pros with NYFW Networking Week

In Fashion Events, Fashion Week, News & Events by Brandy Thomas

The month of September was an exciting one for Fashion Mingle! In addition to our NYFW Networking Party, we added 2 more networking-based events to the agenda, resulting in our first ever NYFW Networking Week. And we’re happy to report that it went better than we could have possibly imagined.

To our attendees, sponsors, mentors and influencers, we can’t thank you enough for helping us bring this idea to life. The purpose of NYFW Networking Week is to encourage connection and collaboration within the fashion community, and your support is the perfect example of what can be achieved when that happens.

NYFW Networking Party

Date: September 9th, 2018
Location: ROW NYC Hotel


From red carpet interviews with DoraSpectacular to our newest event activity, Speed Networking (like speed dating but networking), this September’s NYFW Networking Party was another raging success. We had such a great time chatting with our local NYC fashion pros as well as those from California, Australia, and beyond. VIP attendees enjoyed delicious hors d’oeuvres provided by District M and went home with a variety of sponsor goodies in their Fashion Pro on the Go Swag Bags.
