We are beyond excited to be hosting you tomorrow evening Glam Squad! As you know we’ve teamed up with the MOBO Organisation to bring you our very first Fashion Talk session, a panel discussion on the fashion industry and so much more. A few days ago we shared with you members of our panel. And guess what! We’ve invited more specialists to taje a seat at the GA table to bring you a Glam evening.
