Cynthia Rowley at the 2016 Design Bloggers Conference

At the Design Bloggers Conference this March 6 to March 8, 2016 at the Grand Hyatt Atlanta in Buckhead, fashion designer Cynthia Rowley will serve as the opening keynote speaker.

Brimming with energy, Cynthia Rowley imbues a sense of adventure in all of her design projects, be it wetsuits or her ready-to-wear. This fall Cynthia successfully launched her first home furniture collection at High Point market, a range that includes 140 pieces.

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.

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 from office products, to furniture, beauty, tech accessories, and a fully realized line of fitness clothing which launched this spring.


The Design Bloggers Conference is the only conference specifically focused on the interests of bloggers in interior design. You'll join interior design bloggers, new media innovators, and interior design industry leaders for the sixth annual Design Bloggers Conference, the premier conference and experience for professionals actively using or interested in learning about new media and the interior design industry. This two-day conference brings you a unique opportunity to participate in the intersection of interior design with the world of new media including blogging, social media, and more.
