Las Vegas Photo Diary

As a first time attendee and blogger at WWDMAGIC, I didn't know what to expect as far as how many vendors would allow me to take photos.  Having worked at a trade show as an exhibitor in the past, I knew that photography was prohibited and widely discouraged.  Fast forward to 2012, and with the predominance of smart phones, tablets, and apps such as Instagram, times are changing rapidly.

Fortunately, I was able to document a lot of my experiences.  My strategy was to inquire before taking photos if I was in a booth, and the reaction was generally positive. I did learn that the indie vendors and designers at Project and POOLTRADESHOW were much more likely to allow photography than the larger vendors at WWDMAGIC. Naturally, bloggers are far outnumbered by buyers, but the daily blogger panels hosted by Teen Vogue, WWD, and FNPlatform made me feel right at home.  Here are a few notable images from my short trip to Las Vegas, and for more photos, have a look at Part 1 and Part 2 of the store windows on my other fashion blog, as well as my 2012/2013 fashion trend preview.
