To say that WWDMAGIC has been a whirlwind is an understatement. Between the informational social media panels to discussing womenswear trends and discovering new brands, WWDMAGIC is a serious action packed tradeshow! Although exhausting, it is not to be missed. I love learning about the inter-workings of the fashion industry from sourcing to fashion lines and to the buyers on the lookout for the next big trend.

As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I was very excited to stop by the Emerging Designer Showcase to see up and coming lines and get to know the designers and their inspirations that drives their designs. Today, the afternoon runway show featured the Emerging Designers exclusively. Unlike traditional runway shows, the Emerging Designer Runway was an eclectic mix of sophisticated gowns to jet-set gypsy to professional workwear. It was a refreshing visual approach to showcasing trends and designers.

To change things up a little, I stopped by the accessories section of WWDMAGIC to catch the latest trends in jewelry and handbags. I made sure to stop by Stella Nemiro, an Australian based jewelry designer, to see her latest collection. Her line features vintage inspired yet modern pieces in gold and silver. One of my favorites is the "eye" collection which features beautiful crystals and pearls. Stella Nemiro's line is definitely designed for the woman looking to make a statement with her accessories. As soon as I walked to her booth, I felt like I had hit the goldmine of jewelry! 

One of the perks of being an official blogger is receiving beautiful pieces for a variety of the brands at WWDMAGIC. I truly appreciate the relationship that is established between myself and the brand, but being gifted items is of course a great perk. I made sure I wore pieces from some of the brands, including Stella Nemiro, Boom Boom jeans, Chinese Laundry, and Jaleh on the WWDMAGIC floor today to showcase the beautiful pieces. I loved stopping by all of the brands' booths to show them how I styled their pieces.

I can’t begin to tell you what an unforgettable experience it has been to be an Official Blogger for WWDMAGIC and to share tips, trends, and my experiences with you through this blog and social media. I really enjoyed collaborating with the other official bloggers (who are all amazing) and working with the Stylesmith Team (equally amazing). I hope to be back in August as an official bloggers to discover new brands and what womenswear has in store for us in Spring/Summer 2015!
