Today, we're excited to share the first-ever installment of theFashionDish, a new original series from tFS. Last weekend, we brought together six fashion industry experts for dinner and a roundtable discussion recapping New York Fashion Week. In the coming weeks, we'll be bringing you lots of short clips and a full 30-minute episode drawn from the rowdy, hilarious and informative conversation that ensued. 

Below, the panelists discuss the role of bloggers at Fashion Week, a critical subject this season in light of IMG's reported efforts to bring more exclusivity to Lincoln Center by inviting fewer fashion bloggers. 

About our panelists:

  • June Ambrose, a leading celebrity stylist whose clients include Jay Z, Missy Elliot and Zoe Saldana.
  • Laurie Brookins, a veteran fashion journalist who has interviewed designers like Tom Ford, Frida Giannini and Alber Elbaz. Brookins was also theFashionSpot's social ambassador this Fashion Week.
  • Katie Cassidy, the star of The CW's Arrow and co-founder of the fashion blog TomboyKC.
  • Jaclyn Jones, Senior Womenswear Editor at WGSN, a leading trend forecasting firm.
  • Chiun-Kai "Chunky" Shih, fashion photographer, Condé Nast creative director and the creator of Hipstamatic's 'Chunky' lens.
  • Robert Verdi, a celebrity stylist (best known for his work with Eva Longoria), television personality and lifestyle expert.

Julie Bensman, theFashionSpot's editor-at-large, moderated the discussion, which was filmed at The Lion in New York City.
