There’s no mistaking that social media has changed the landscape of marketing, commerce, and fashion. It seems that everyone these days has a blog and a Twitter account, and the fashion blogger subset has become an industry force to be reckoned with: they now sit on the front row of Fashion Week, they appear in national publications, and they guest design for major brands.

See BurdaStyle Co-Founder Nora Abousteit speak at Sunday’s symposium! It will be a day to learn from featured speakers and share your sites with blogging peers and attending brands.
