sossbanner State of Style Summit Speakers Announced! Rebecca Minkoff, Robert Verdi, Patrick McMullan, Lindsey Calla, More

What do you get when you combine the hottest designers to grace the New York Fashion Week runways, the writers to blog about them, and the guys who give their patrons an excuse to ferry them to Electric Room that night? You get a fascinating, 360-degree insight into the current State of Style, that’s what.

The cycle of style extends far beyond the closed doors of Lincoln Center, which is why StyleCaster has teamed up with 92Y once again to host the 2nd State of Style Summit. For those who missed the first go-around, the 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.

Through dynamic pairings of personalities, provocative dialogues, and break-out sessions, the program provides insights into emerging consumer trends in the fashion, beauty and style industries.

Now, we are thrilled to be able to share a sneak peek into this season’s State of Style Summit lineup! Below are just some of the speakers you’ll see on October 11.
