Description

Back for the 4th year in a row, the Gossip & Glamour Style Summit will take place on Tuesday, May 14th at MOHAI in Seattle. Over 80 of the top fashion and lifestyle bloggers in the city will gather for a day of insight, inspiration, and community-building. This year’s event will cover both Seattle fashion history and the future of fashion in the city looking at retail trends, sustainability, and the emergence of tech. In addition, bloggers will have the opportunity to hear from seasoned experts on how to grow their brands and create a thriving business. NEW this year, we’ve added a panel on Balance + Blogging, to discuss mental health for creatives and the importance of balance in the digital world.
