Our March “Meet the Press” event was a huge success! We had over 100 fashionable guests join us at one of Sotheby’s hottest property’s in Northwest DC. FGIDC members and enthusiasts learned about pitching to the modern day media. Our panel of media mavens included editors from Capitol File Magazine, Washingtonian Magazine, Refinery 29, Brightest Young Things and DC Modern Luxury. Each panelist let us in on industry secrets including: how to tailor a pitch and the importance of simplicity, patience and bravery. Attendees also received reassurance that the media needs our partnership as consumers, shop owners and readers. As for the future of fashion in the media, the search for quality bloggers continues in addition to a desire for a beautiful online print magazines.
After the panel discussion, guests enjoyed house tours, light bites and cocktails from Absolut Elyx. It was a fun evening filled with many new faces and familiar friends. View photos REVAMP FGI DC.
