Fashion Mamas — the exclusive members-only network for dynamic mothers who work in fashion and creative industries — is set to host its second Mamas Making It Summit at The Line Hotel hotel on Sunday, June 3 from 10am to 4pm. Following the success of last year's inaugural conference celebrating career-driven mothers, which featured speakers including Jaime King, Nicole Trunfio, and Ali Fedotowsky, this year's #MamasMakingItSummit is set to host a slew of equally inspiring women, unique experiences, and generous gifting.

"It's a myth that women have to choose between having a successful career and being a good mother," explains Fashion Mamas founder and CEO Natalie Alcala. "You can absolutely do both, and our summit will shine a light on stylish mamas who are unapologetically making it happen. Just like last year, we truly hope that every attendee leaves with their entrepreneurial spirits lifted and are motivated to take their businesses to the next level. Hopefully they'll make a new friend along the way, too!"

Panels for the one-day-only event will include: Branding Brilliance starring designer and model Anine Bing, Drybar founder Alli Webb, and blogging sensation Geri Hirsch; Creative Content starring lifestyle star Whitney Port, digital influencer Chriselle Lim, and AKID co-founder Ashleigh Dempster; Philanthropy starring Caitlin Crosby of The Giving Keys alongside Lauren Paul and Molly Thompson of Kind Campaign; Essential Self-Care starring nutritionist and New York Times bestselling author Kimberly Snyder, actress and lifestyle expert Denise Vasi, and optimist doctor Deepika Chopra; Community Matters starring designer and Echo Park Craft Fair co-founder Beatrice Valenzuela, model and artist Jaycina, and activist and DJ Daisy O'Dell.

In addition to game-changing panels, the day will also feature tons of on-site experiences including: a Social Media Critiques station where digital marketing pros Mai Nguyen-Miyoshi and Annette Vartanian will personally review attendees' social media accounts and provide their honest feedback and next-level tips; a complimentary Headshots Studio where attendees can get chic and modern headshots taken to use for all of their business/professional profile needs; a LOOM Ladies' Lounge where mamas can charge their phones, rest their feet, pump, and breastfeed (little ones under 12 months are welcome to this event); a hairstyling station with Drybar; non-toxic makeup touch-ups and skincare gifting from Beautycounter; mama wellness pampering and gifting with Saje Natural Wellness; socially-conscious jewelry station by The Giving Keys

Tickets start at $200 and include access to all panels and experiences, limited-edition branded swag, breakfast and lunch by renowned chef Roy Choi courtesy of The Line Hotel, a champagne toast following the final panel, and a curated tote bag filled with unique gifts from Fashion Mamas-approved brands.
