Second day of Ebay Online Fashion Week was hosted by Darren Kennedy and the guests for the chat were Natalie B. Coleman (Irish Fashion Designer) and Andrea Byrne (Irish Fashion Journalist).
The first topic of the talk was “Selling on Ebay” and Andrea, a avid seller (with her mum’s help), gave some tips on how to sell and what sells better. I wasn’t impressed when she said the designer collaborations and higher level brands actually sell better but she didn’t put me off from selling my ”crappy” pieces cause she sold some Penneys stuff herself!
Natalie B. Coleman resumed her carreer in few words (being really modest about her achievements all the time) but the most interesting talking was about her collections and the story she tells trough her garments, for example her top in wich we can read ” All the jewelry I’ve never got” that actually comes from the one moment when she was looking trough her mum’s jewelry that she got from her boyfriend and Natalie that never got any.
After the introductions the talk got a bit more serious (but not less enjoyable and entertaining) with topics like ” how to set up your own online brand” “networking” and “being in the Fashion Industry in Ireland”.
Lots of questions came trough twitter from the hashtag “eBayOFW” but on the room we also could make questions and mine came on the very end of the program to Darren and Andrea that are bloggers ” how do you get people to follow you?”. The answer wasn’t different from others I’ve heard before, is all about getting out there, having a facebook page and being a self publicist, getting your name out there!
It was a great talk, but Am I famous now that I was featured on live stream online TV?
