February is coming faster than you can say “fashion month” and with it, another season of catwalk moments, new collections, street style stars, and, of course, parties. This season though, attendees in New York will not only have a chance to feat their eyes but also their minds, at the second edition of FASHINNOVATION - a one day event at the intersection of fashion and technology. True to our mission to make to make such industry events more accessible and open to a broad range of attendees, we’ve partnered with FASHINNOVATION to give away a pair of tickets for the upcoming conference, taking place on 13th February 2019.
Founded by husband and wife Marcelo and Jordana Guimarães, FASHINNOVATION aims to to facilitate conversations between the leaders in the fashion and tech industries, so that both parties can always have a finger on the pulse on the latest in innovation, while inspiring an entrepreneurial mindset.
“We want to grow a community of like minded individuals who believe that through collaboration, one grows and flourishes… and with the way the fashion industry is evolving through innovations and technologies, those two industries must always be conversing, in order to always keep ahead of the curve,” say the founders. “We are hoping to facilitate that via FASHINNOVATION.”
The upcoming full day event will include various panel discussions, keynote talks and pitches by fashion tech start-ups. Confirmed speakers already include some of the biggest names shaping the industry such as Paul Dillinger (VP Innovation, Levis), Ivan Poupyrev (VP, Google Jacquard), Lilian Liu (Director, The United Nations Global Compact), Yuli Ziv (Managing Director, Launchmetrics) and Ryan Leslie (Founder, Superphone), among others.
Beyond the core conference programme, attendees will be treated to a red carpet, enjoy pop up displays, a fashion installation by designer Imogen Evans, a live performance by singer/songwriter DeeMo and be part of the book launch for It Can Be You by The NYLON Project. The book aims to humanise homelessness and includes memoirs by 50 influencers sharing their stories of struggles and how they overcame them. Finally, as all great fashion events, FASHINNOVATION will finish off with a VIP cocktail networking reception.
