This September we travelled to New York City for the Fashion Tech Week NY event. Our founder Chelsea Klukas presented and opening keynote discussing what her work in FashionTech startups (BeauCoo), retail technology at scale at Amazon, and work on MakeFashion and her own line of ready-to-wear fashiontech has taught her about the future of the fashion industry. The talk discussed how technology is transforming how we shop for clothes, find clothes that fit, organize our closets, find outfits to wear, and interact with our environments.

We also showcased samples of our ready-to-wear line in two showcases alongside other leading fashion technology designers including Gillianfashion and Sascha Hosey. The garments were showcased in an art gallery setting, blending traditional mediums with futuristic fashion.

If you’d like to bring some of the drama of the event to your own event, the garments showcased from this collection are available to order or for rental.
