TORONTO, Nov. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Spark Sessions, Canada's first fashion and beauty blogger conference, will premiere as the ultimate Canuck connection point for bloggers, PR reps, and industry leaders to immerse themselves in blogging education, networking and the exchange of ideas. With a powerhouse of speakers led by the host of Bell Media's FashionTelevisionChannel Jeanne Beker and the sponsor list topped by Smart Set, Spark Sessions will offer a unique opportunity for Canadian bloggers, influencers and writers to connect, engage and experience fashion and beauty blogging at its best.
"After attending the top fashion and beauty blogger conferences around the world, I recognized the need for a Canadian born event," says Marissa Anwar, founder of Spark Sessions. "Canada is rich in blogging content. A unique yearly event to bring everyone together in this industry is both an opportunity to network and a way to expose brands to talented online voices."
In its first year, Anwar built up an executive team of bloggers who are well-versed in content and creating strong influences online. The executive team includes Anjali Handa, Nicole Wilson, Jenny Jovanovic, Elaine Atkins, Deanne Castro, Anum Khan and Melissa Grosser. In a few months, the team has built up a prestigious line up of speakers, large fashion and beauty brand participants and an eclectic roster of bloggers and attendees.
Jeanne Beker, Canada's fashion icon, will act as the conference's keynote speaker - a presence that brings Spark Sessions to the forefront of Canadian fashion and beauty events. Another notable Canadian speaker is Lainey Lui - scribe of the immensely popular gossip blog LaineyGossip.com, Co-Host of CTV's THE SOCIAL, and ETALK Reporter.
Smart Set, one of Canada's favourite brands for fashionable essentials is rapidly becoming a destination for all lovers of fashion and has signed on as the conference's Title Fashion Sponsor. In the spirit of coming together and inspiring each other, this fashion label will host an exciting styling challenge for conference participants.
Almay, the colourful cosmetics brand best known for their good-for-you items, has signed on as the conference's Title Beauty Sponsor - sharing their wonderful range of caring colour and hypoallergenic makeup with conference participants. Almay will treat participants to a gifting station featuring a pro-makeup artist to give customized tips for enhancing your natural beauty and sensitive skin using the latest makeup trends
