NY Meetup: The Power of Customization

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 26, 2015 @ 6.30PM

Last month we saw the doors close on Tinker Tailor, one of a number of startups trying to make customizable clothing for women. So what is the impact on the supply chain, and how are some businesses able to succeed in this space?

This month, we take a moment to look at those ruling the space, and what opportunities there are for fashion and tech to create a more customized experience (that’s affordable to both the creator and the supplier).

Industry chat with: 

Fashionista, Editor-at-Large, Lauren Sherman
Shoes of Prey, Co-Founder, Jodie Fox
Jodie is the Co-founder and Chief Evangelist at ShoesOfPrey.com – where women can design their own shoes. Started just 4 years ago, Shoes of Prey broke even at 2 months, hit multimillion dollar revenue in under 2 years and today is a global multimillion dollar enterprise.

Demos from startups disrupting the space include:

1 Atelier
Meticulously handcrafted and customizable luxury handbags made in the NYC Garment District.

More TBA!

As always, we’ll end the evening with networking and drinks.
