Teen Vogue Fashion U: Day 2

And then Day 2 of Teen Vogue Fashion University began.

Saturday October 22 was the most jam-packed day of the program and it was by far, the most amazing. It consisted of sessions with fashion legends throughout the day, eventually ending up with a private shopping party at Topshop in Soho.

Each student chose their sessions from an amazing list of speakers, so there were many more guests than what I post on here. These photos were only from the sessions I attended. Some other notable figures include: Whitney Port, Chris Benz, Lauren Berger, and Alexander Wang.

Teen Vogue Editor-in-Chief Amy Astley introduced the event's keynote speaker, Michael Kors.

Michael Kors gave some great insight into how he got into the fashion industry and gave advice to aspiring designers.

Next up was "The Dynamic Duo" featuring the young designers behind Proenza Schouler. These graduates from Parsons are so talented, and it was great to hear their stories.

And then there was my ultimate favourite...the one and only Betsey Johnson! I have always been a Betsey Johnson fan, so I was beyond excited to get to see her in person.

And she was crazy as usual. And that is why I love her.

Next was "The Chosen One" featuring Jason Wu (born in Taiwan, but moved to Vancouver!), who designed Michelle Obama's inauguration gown.

And the final session of the day was a panel discussion with the editors of Teen Vogue. It was so helpful and great to hear tips straight from the pros.

And then there was the Topshop event, which was amazing!

Anyways, that's all for now (I know, that was one fully loaded blog post haha)! Day 3 is up next!
