With fashionistas, retailers and influencers all jetting to NYC for New York Fashion week, FashTech decided that September would be the ideal time to launch FashTechNYC! With the same set up as their London and San Francisco events, the group invited startups to demo their products and had a panel discussion for an audience of fashion and tech innovators, influencers, and investors. Wilmerhale’s office was a fantastic venue for the event, on the 45th floor of the World Trade Center with magnificent views of Manhattan.
Our very own Brooklyn Accelerator founder Deb Johnson served as a VIP on the panel alongside Gretchen Harnick, Professor of Fashion Marketing at Parsons, David Freschman – CEO-FashInvest/Managing Principal-Innovation Capital Advisors , Loree Lash-Valencia, VP. North America of WGSN
Jimmy Lepore Hagan, Director of Digital and Social Media at Nanette Lepore and Bryn Newman – Marketing Manager of Le Tote.
