Fashion Tech: The New Wave of Online Retail

A session at International Startup Festival

Thursday 12th July, 2012

3:20pm to 3:50pm (EST)

In the past year there has been a surge of activity in social fashion and fashion. Retail and online fashion seemed to be stagnant since the first wave of startups led many brick and mortar stores to sell products online. But with the sudden appearance of Pinterest on the scene and the realization that fashion brands are getting more and more socially savvy, the attention has been on the rise of the Fashion:Tech startup. This panel will discuss how fashion brands are using and partnering with startups and revolutionizing retail in new ways as well as bring the VC perspective to Fashion:Tech as an investment.
