Cornell University’s Van Dyk Lewis moderates a chat between social entrepreneurs Neil Blumenthal (Warby Parker), Sean Carasso (Falling Whistles), Lauren Bush (FEED), Simon Isaacs (Taskforce), and Adam Braun (Pencils of Promise).

That’s right: The StyleCaster State of Style Summit is coming back for a second season.

For those who missed the first go-around, the State of Style Summit unites some of the most influential leaders in the industry to discuss the future of style and new media, all at a world-renowned cultural center: The 92nd Street Y.

Through provocative panels and dynamic conversation, we’re able to share some extremely cool insights into emerging trends across the fashion, beauty, and style spaces. In February, we hosted luminaries like Rebecca Minkoff, Lauren Bush, DKNY PR Girl, and Stacy London, who all led incredible discussions with the hundreds of people who attended. (Check out last season’s program here!)

Tickets for September’s Summit will go on sale soon, but in the meantime, here’s your chance to tell us who you’d like to see take the stage! Email with your suggestions, and stay tuned for more big announcements to come.
