Fashinnovation held a successful panel discussion on July 11th at WeWork in NYC, introducing their new concept “Fashion Is To Love”, which derived from its mission of showcasing innovations via ways of technology which are shaping the fashion industry. This served as the countdown to its 3rd edition of the conference, which will be held on September 4th, 2019.
The evening consisted of a mix of entrepreneurs, innovators, influencers and fashion veterans, as they sipped on wine and exchanged ideas at WeWork, NYC. The awe-inspiring speakers for the evening were: Sandra Campos – CEO, Diane Von Furstenberg; Michael Ferraro – Executive Director FIT/INFOR DTech Lab; Jaclynn Brennan – Founding Partner eSTYLAR and Jordana Guimaraes – Co-founder, FASHINNOVATION.
