Teen Vogue Fashion U, Round Three

Last weekend, I flew to NYC to attend Teen Vogue Fashion University for my third year in a row.  The best learning really does happen outside of the traditional classroom.

This year, my schedule consisted of seminars taught by the Teen Vogue editors, Erika Bearman (a.k.a. Oscar PR Girl), Alexa Chung, Coco Rocha, bloggers from The Coveteur and Into the Gloss, and Phyllis Posnick.  I also toured the Teen Vogue editorial floor and Sperry Topsider showroom.  The two shopping events this year were hosted at Express and Topshop, where Fashion U students were given discounts, yummy desserts, and mocktails.

My pictures from the weekend are below.  I decided against including a blurry picture of Alexa Chung.  I was sitting too far away. :(
