CAFA x The Kit Connect Conference

Watch The Kit Connect Conference Video by Travellinginstyle.

I had the opportunity to attend The Kit Connect Conference—held in partnership with the Canadian Art & Fashion Awards  on Wednesday April 5th 2017. The conference was a full day career series which was strategically divided into various segments for understanding and reflecting on various areas of fashion. The Editors, The Artists, The Marketers, The Bloggers, The Retailers & The Designers.

Every single member of  The Kit family was super sweet & extremely warm.  I enjoyed quick chats with Laura decarufel, the editor in chief, Jillian Vieira, The fashion editor & Amber Hickson.

It was great meeting the bloggers, Ania B who is also a CAFA nominee for Digital Influencer Of The Year 2017. Jodi Blk, who loves Black & white everything.

I also had a pleasure of discussing my work with Mario Chiofolo ( Hudson’s Bay director of marketing) & Jackie Charest, luxury retail marketer .
