Hey all! So Flyover Fashion Fest Day two was even better than day one! There were tons of different events happening all throughout the day and I managed to attend a couple without completely wearing myself out. Iowa Fashion Project brought in some seriously successful and talented individuals.
I got the amazing opportunity to go to three discussions throughout this day. First I heard Marissa Muller, editor at Conde Nast, speak on politics in the fashion industry. She brought up so many good points that people often look past. Next, former head art director at Nasty Gal, Sarah Kissel, came and talked about her journey from the Midwest to the Coasts. This woman has so much experience and is an incredible graphic designer and director. Last, but most definitely not least, activist and journalist, Noor Tagouri, spoke on fashion identity and told her life story. No matter what your beliefs are, this woman will make you smile and inspire you. She is so kind-hearted and down to earth (and also hilarious). She is an advocate for all women and people and wants their stories to be heard.
I am so thankful I got to listen and speak with these three insanely awesome women. Each of them came from such different backgrounds with different careers but they were all so passionate about what they do. I had an amazing time in Iowa City for Flyover Fashion Fest and hope to be back next year.
Stay tuned in the coming days for some Flyover Fashion Fest street style inspiration.
See my recap and outfit from day one here.
I have been wanting to wear this outfit ever since I received it in the mail. This jacket and shorts set is from the Victoria Beckham X Target designer collaboration; one of my all time favorite Target collabs. I paired it with a graphic tee and canvas sneakers for a street wear look. I felt confident in this and got many compliments!
