All About RuffleCon

RuffleCon Original 2014 PosterOne day in the summer of 2013, the original founders Christina and Caro were talking online with some other friends about the ongoing topic regarding media-based conventions and their lack of alternative fashion related content. In particular, certain conventions that used to have a lot of alternative fashion content were now cutting a lot of that down. In that conversation, Christina and Caro went off on a private conversation and started brainstorming about how they could come up with their own conference. From there, they started snagging people on board, one by one, to develop the conference they dreamed of. They wanted something a step above a media-based convention; meant for fashion enthusiasts of all kinds, and an environment where learning and discussion between styles could occur. From there, the first year of RuffleCon began.
