I'm a female CEO of a Fashion tech co that's worked with Macy's + Disney & helped launched over 500 brands without holding inventory all while #stilettostrapping- AMA!
Fashion + tech = my world. I grew up in the fashion industry and graduated from Boston University & Parsons School of Design. As a fashion designer I went from New York Fashion week designing for Richie Rich, DVF, and A-list celebrities to bringing a solo designed collection all the way at London Fashion Week in my first season. From the trenches I realized that the fashion business model desperately needed a redesign so I decided to learn from tech startups about what they were doing right. Seven years ago I entered into the tech startup world in the retail marketing space & learned first hand the efficiency and potential of the space. Nineteenth Amendment is the result of the collision of my two worlds; a platform & business model that gives designers a smart way break into the fashion industry with the least amount of time, effort, and money (what I call #StilettoStrapping), while growing domestic manufacturing and bringing amazing, undiscovered fashion from the runway to closets of fashion lovers through a new type of retailing we refer to as 'fashion-as-experience'. My mission, starting in fashion, is to make the way products come to market, are made, and are sold, better for everyone: from designers and shoppers, to manufacturers and retailers. I'm Forbes’ 30 Under 30 2016 for Retail & E-commerce, Apparel Magazine's 30 Under 30 2016, NRF's Person Shaping Retail's Future 2018, I am a mentor at TechStars, a mentor with AOL's Built by Girls and I'm just getting started. Ask me anything!
