Calling all chicettes for a mini pop quiz with a fabulous prize! This Friday, the Afingo Fashion Forum NY hits the Fashion Institute of Technology for an all-day smorgasbord of stylish panelists and killer networking opps. In October, the new fashion social networking site kicked off its event-planning component with "Behind the Seams," drawing the likes of Steven Alan, Tibi's Amy Smilovic and Milly's Michelle Smith to dispense pearls of industry wisdom on five fab panels.

 Afingo is bringing in the big guns again this Friday with a stellar lineup of five panels, running the gamut from "Iconic Wisdom with Cynthia Rowley," with Elle fashion news editor Nick Axelrod interviewing the designer, to a discussion on "Innovation" featuring fashion trailblazers from major gamechangers like Moda Operandi, Rent the Runway, Bonobos and Groupon. Bibhu Mohapatra and the design duo behind Costello Tagliapietra are among the many big fashion names in the mix, with sanctioned schmooze-time between panels to meet everyone. “We have designed a virtual cocktail party for anyone who loves fashion," according to Liza Deyrmenjian, chief executive officer and co-founder of Afingo. The proverbial cocktail party goes literal this Thursday, with an exclusive kickoff soiree for all-day passholders at a chic boutique.

All-day tix are priced at $200, while individual panels are valued at $50 for general access for $20 for students. But Chic has a full ride to the Afingo Fashion Forum to give away!

Ridiculously Easy Contest Question: Which of these acronyms does NOT stand for a fashion or design school? FIDM, LIM, FIAM, RISD, FIT, and SCAD.

Email chicreport@chicreport.com ASAP with the correct answer and we'll enter you in a random drawing to win. Your prize? Snag gratis all-day access to Friday's Forum and tix to the Thursday kick-off cocktail shindig from 6 to 8 p.m. at a hip Meatpacking boutique for you and a lucky guest! Please include your full name and telephone number. Check out the Forum schedule for more incentive to enter. Bonne chance!
