In 2012, Portable was very proud to bring fashion thought leader and internet Susie Lau (aka Susie Bubble) to Australia for an exclusive series of talks.

London based Susie Lau pioneered the fashion blogging revolution in 2006 with the launch of her blog Style 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 her Portable Talks series throughout Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne, Susie explored the current fashion landscape and identified 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 discussed 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.
