Levi’s Curve ID Blogger Event

This week, I was fortunate enough to attend the Levi’s (client of Edelman) Curve ID blogger event in San Francisco at the flagship store in Union Square!

It’s a totally innovative campaign where they gathered more than 60,000 3D body scan images from around the world, finding the shapes of women in order to find the key differences. Three major categories came out of their research: Slight Curve, Demi Curve and Bold Curve.

One interesting fact I tweeted out from the event was this: Levi’s (client) talked to woman across the world. 87% said they have a lot of jeans but wish they had one pair that fit. #CurveID.

Check out my time at the event and how much fun it was learning about the new product! By the way, my CurveID is the Bold Curve… and it fit great!

We found our fit!

It was great chatting with Meghan, The Levi’s Girl!

I’m a Bold Curve…

They looked nice.

Twitter Goes to New York Fashion Week

10 Sep

Happy Fashion Week, everyone! No matter if you’re in New York or you’re on the west coast wishing you were at Fashion Week, you too can attend Fashion Week at all hours by living vicariously through the hashtag: #NYFW.

And, similar to Twitter’s microsite (shown above), I added an RSS feed of the hashtag #NYFW to the right column of this blog. Of course, it’s not as advanced, but I didn’t want you to miss a second of Fashion Week, no matter where you were on the web!

Now, Twitter built a microsite aggregating and organizing every tweet and picture with the hashtag #NYFW. Sponsored by American Express and partnering with @Modelina, @WomensWearDaily, @Bergdorfs and @AskBobbiBrown, Twitter has also created @nyfw account bringing content from a number of reputable sources.

“What’s useful about the microsite is that it allows followers to hone in on the topics they’re most interested in, whether that’s runway news, designer interviews, beauty trends or behind-the-scenes gossip. For those who aren’t interested in following Fashion Week minute-by-minute, Twitter has also made it easy to catch up with daily recaps and archived footage,” reports Mashable.
