Portable is proud to present an exclusive series of talks with fashion thought leader and internet icon, Susie Lau.

London based Susie Lau pioneered the fashion blogging revolution in 2006 with the launch of her blogStyle Bubble. Her daily posts, featuring a highly articulate and intelligent approach to fashion trends, quickly caught the attention of the New York Times and the The Guardian, which helped to establish her as the leading voice in fashion blogging internationally.

Since then, Susie has cemented her place as one of the world’s leading online fashion icons. Style Bubble is one of the most highly trafficked fashion blogs on the web and her expert knowledge of online publishing has landed her at the door of the world’s biggest brands, helping the likes of Prada, Dior and Top Shop to become relevant online.

In this exclusive series of talks presented by Portable in Australia, Susie will explore the current fashion landscape in 2012, identifying how fashion designers and retail brands can position themselves globally by working with online publishers, bloggers and social media channels to create real connections with audiences. She will also speak generally on her trajectory as a professional blogger, exploring the challenges that all online publishers face in connecting with readers and creating an authentic voice in the noisy world of social media.
