With less than three weeks to go, NYFW related events and work opportunities are popping up left and right. Some of the best to show up so far:
On Tuesday the lineup for Independent Fashion Bloggers “Evolving Influence” Conference went live. Bloggers such as Susie Bubble, Gala Darling, Bryan Boy, Tavi, and more will be on hand to discuss blog ethics, the business of blogging, and the future of fashion blogging.

Candidates MUST be able to work entire duration of New York Fashion Week,
February 11 to February 18, including the weekend. Night positions are also
available. Please DO NOT APPLY if you can not work that entire week. This
is a paying position. There will be training pre-Fashion Week, with
possible opportunity to continue work post-Fashion Week.

February 17th near the end of NYFW, photo bloggers Garance Dore and The Sartorialist Scott Schuman will be discussing social media and fashion at Tribeca Skyling Studios.
Ticket prices are a bit steep in my opinion, but if you’re a big fan of the two photographers, their first press appearance together would be a great opportunity to hear them talk shop.
