Event description

Description

Have you ever wondered how to really get your fashion / blogging / styling / influencing business started and how to earn an income from your efforts? Do you have little questions you have been nervous to ask - Can I buy clothes and write that off on tax if I am a stylist, or legally do I need to get models to sign waiver forms, or even how do I protect my IP? And do you want to hear from some industry greats who have time and time again been successful?

Our 2017 B.F.M (Blogging, Fashion, Media) Workshop is for you!

In 2016 this sell out event saw industry established and new labels and bloggers gain raw, invaluable information from some of the best in the business. This year we are taking it one step further and not only do you get an amazing Q&A, but we are complimenting this with the real business skills to help your business off the ground or take it to the next level.

MORNING SESSION 9-12.30PM

We will be running sessions on Media and PR - hearing from top magazine editor Assia Benmedjdoub from industry fashion business magazine Ragtrader and local press Christie Sutherland from Style Magazine as well as press agency PDPR to really get to the bottom of how to get featured in the media and how to make this work for you - what is newsworthy, and how to make sure what you present has the best chance of being featured.

Fashion Legal - hear from the most approachable women in the legal industry Leora Rose about your role as a blogger, fashion designer, influencer or photographer - even hair and make up - your basic legal needs in the industry to make sure you are covered. There will be time to ask those questions you are unsure of!

How to Style to Success - Brisbane wouldn't have the fashion scene it does today without Liz Golding, who amongst other things has had successful careers in modelling, and styling for print and events, as a fashion editor and a successful business woman (not to mention also being a mum which we also love). Liz was one of the main driving forces for the success of Mercedes Benz Fashion Festival for the 10 years of the event, and has worked in print media with her eye for style for the past decade. Liz holds the best knowledge suited right now for our Brisbane industry, and will chat candidly from her styling and business experience right through to her current role as Director of Qld's only photographic and creative agency. Get ready to take notes.

Building success on correct accounting and money business skills, hear from BDO leading accountants as well as Commonwealth Bank some of those tips around what you can and can't claim for tax in your fashion business. This is bite-sized session with great Money Matters information specifically for you. This session makes sure you are planning your income and your success as much as you are planning your Instagram feed.

Influencers / Bloggers - hear from guest speaker Yelena Fairfax, Editor and Founder of Husskie (Sydney), Yelena comes from 15 years in the publishing industry and this segment is really to understand the world of influencing, how to do it well, and how to stand out, and what you can do to increase your following. Aicha Robertson from Brisbane's very own The Fashion Hiest takes the stage with Yelena to discuss her success in the world of influencing, fashion and monetizing.

Thanks to Telstra we are excited to present a segment on using technology in your fashion business and the latest tools and apps to help you achieve more with your time.

In our last business series segment we hear from Australia Post with Brisbane's savviest fashion professional Sarah Timmerman from Beginning Boutique and James Lillis from Black Milk - talking business skills and strategy around processes and formulas to take your business to the next level.

BREAK FOR LUNCH 12.30PM

A beautiful buffet style meal prepared by Sofitel's French inspired chef team. Make the most of this time to chat to your new acquaintances at your table. There is no allocated seating, so please bring business cards and a very open and networking attitude so everyone can go home having met someone new in the industry.

PHOTO OPPORTUNITY FOR VIPS

AFTERNOON SESSION Q&A 1PM-2PM

The most anticipated event of the series - hear from our GUEST PANEL - all panel are flying in for this event to share their knowledge of the fashion industry with the Qld market. It's going to be hard - but we are releasing the names of our panel slowly to keep building your excitement (it's big though!).
