We are thrilled to announce that Cynthia Rowley will keynote the Design Bloggers Conference. Cynthia Rowley is a leading global lifestyle brand sold in over 60-freestanding collection boutiques, as well as in department, specialty, and online stores worldwide. Brimming with energy, Cynthia Rowley imbues a sense of adventure in all of her design projects, be it wetsuits or her ready-to-wear.
While attending the Art Institute of Chicago (where she had every intention of becoming a painter), Rowley fell into fashion when a local department store buyer discovered her on the train. That initial interest gave Cynthia the confidence to move to NYC where she went on to win the CFDA award for best new talent, became a best-selling author and has appeared on TV shows such as Project Runway, Letterman, The Today Show, and Celebrity Jeopardy.
She was named Designer of the Year at the American Image Awards this past April, and continues to bring innovative design concepts to new categories that extend beyond the realm of fashion. Some of which run the gamut from office products, to furniture, beauty, tech accessories, and a fully realized line of fitness clothing which launched this spring.
