Blogfest 2012: Processed + Condensed

Now that Blogfest 2012 has ended, I thought I'd share a quick recap with my Instagrams. Meeting and connecting with fellow bloggers is always the best.  The first night at the Kips Bay Showhouse, I got to chat with several ladies that I was hoping to connect with, but sadly not everyone.  Day two started bright and early at Hearst Tower.  Listening to top tier magazine editors give engaging presentations along with some of the most dynamic personalities in the design world was an incredible treat. I plan to blog about some of these talents soon. That morning there was also a short film about the event's sponsor, Kravet.  The film illustrated the company's origins. An immigrant "American dream" story that personally, as a first generation American, really touched me. Kravet, a family based company with it's vast amount of product lines simply amazes me. Next we were off to the Elle Decor Concept House, and then impossibly in the same day, the Decoration and Design building (the D+D).  There was a delicious spread for lunch and then we were treated to a truly entertaining and talented guest speaker: Alexa Hampton (seated on the left in the image below along with Traditional Home's EIC, Ann Main). Alexa, my new designer crush, is basically the coolest. She should have her own talk show.  Shortly after, with the luxury of not living too far from the city, I took off and joined everyone again the following day at the Museum of the City of New York, where Glassybaby's founder, Lee Rhodes, gave a touching presentation about the company's products and mission. Lee, officially became my entrepreneur crush. Blogfest kept us busy and inspired to say the least, thanks for another great event!
