Founded in 2007, Independent Fashion Bloggers (IFB) is a self-funded organization that cultivates a community for fashion bloggers to share their experiences. With over 55,000 active members, IFB has become the go-to source for insider tips and industry information.
For the past couple of years, founder Jennine Jacob and the IFB team have been hosting a twice-yearly conference for bloggers.
