Simply Stylist hosts their Fashion and Beauty Conferences in New York, Chicago, Dallas and Los Angeles where fashion and beauty experts, bloggers, celebrity stylists, fashion designers and entrepreneurs come together and share their respective insights on what it takes to make it in the industry. Catt Sadler, E! News Correspondent, is the official host of all the Simply Stylist events. “The Simply Stylist concept is brilliant - the fact that you have fashion bloggers, designers, stylists and editors all in one arena sharing all of their knowledge and experience,” Sadler states.
Sarah Boyd, the founder and ‘dot connecter’ of the company, fell in love with the world of fashion at an early age and pursued her interest throughout college and beyond. She launched Simply Inc. in 2009 as an agency specializing in Events, Public Relations and Brand Collaborations. Not long after that, Sarah launched Simply Stylist: a company that would not only focus on spotlighting the fashion and beauty industry trendsetters, but one that would aid in growth and development of these individuals. “I wanted to create a company that centered around networking in the fashion & beauty industries. I took my relationships that I made from my years in public relations and now have the platform to connect them to the world and show their value in the fashion & beauty industries through informative panels, breakout sessions and trend talks” says Boyd. Since the inception of Simply Stylist less than two years ago, there have been over 3000 attendees collectively at the conferences held in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago. Boyd is aiming to reach 1000 attendees per city by 2014.
There are different packages offered for each event. The VIP Fashionista ($200), Fashion & Beauty Lover ($100) and the Shopaholic ($20). The VIP Fashionista package includes a networking lunch sponsored by HauteLook. Following the lunch is the Fashion and Beauty Panel, which the VIP and Fashion & Beauty Lover’s are able to attend. After the panel finishes, all attendees are able to attend the designer shopping, pampering and breakout sessions. Past brands that have participated in Simply Stylist events are Hobo International, Whitney Eve, Naven, O.P.I., GlamGlow, Rent the Runway, HauteLook and TOMS Shoes.
