Well the party didn’t stop at the gift cards and the sweet treats during day two—actually there was more design inspiration! Our Design Blogger Conference started with the wit and wisdom of Martyn Lawrence Bullard and Bunny Williams greeting us at the door! During his keynote speech, Martyn told of his colorful design path and how the relationships he formed with Cheryl Tiegs, Elton John and Cher has help to carry his career to what it is today. Martyn’s line with Schumacher is pretty fabulous too!
Our day then rolled into several conference topics. Following a champagne toast, we welcomed “BlogStars: Social Networking, Content, and The Future of Blogs” with:
Macala Wright blew the doors off the place! With her knowledge as a Los Angeles based digital media expert, retail journalist and social media personality, she is widely recognized as a social media pioneer and digital futurist in the fashion and lifestyle industries. It was so great for her to share her magic with us!
This was all followed by a Hall of Fame Award Luncheon/Break hosted by Benjamin Moore, more design chats and a networking and cocktail event sponsored by Joss & Main and Wayfair Home where the companies created a Design Grove for trees filled with branches of their product cards! Not to mention the vodka martini loge where drinks were mixed in a beautiful ice sculpture!
