Fashinnovation: Where Fashion & Technology Connect

Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Sep 21, 2018 - ​On Sept.12, 2018, FASHINNOVATION successfully launched during New York Fashion Week – hundreds of people (via live streaming and present) had the chance to listen in on panel discussions by speakers which included: NASA, FIT, IBM, Ryan Leslie, Arwa Alammari – Ambassador of the Arab Fashion Council, David Meltzer (host of the start-up pitch competition), VP of the State of New York, Liz Bacelar (founder of Decoded Fashion), Timo Weiland, Katherine Keating and Oskar Metsavaht of Osklen. A fashion installation was presented by Layana Aguilar (Project Runway designer). Performances by Heather LaRose and Ezinma (Lil Ezi) – violinist for Beyonce – entertained the guests. A piece of art was created throughout the event by street artist/creative director Jason Naylor – in which proceeds (through a current online auction), will be donated to Open Style Lab. The event connected the fashion, technology & entertainment industries through thought-provoking conversations, thus inspiring the entrepreneurial mindset.

FASHINNOVATION when founded by husband/wife – Marcelo & Jordana Guimaraes – was originally put together as an event: an idea which started in June of 2018. Throughout the planning & execution with a simple email speaking of the concept, they garnered the attention of C levels of many organizations, including: Samsung, Diane Von Furstenberg, Fergie, Louis Vuitton, Google and CFDA. In just a month’s time, this dynamic duo brought on board over 30 speakers as confirmed participants.

“It was then that we realized that FASHINNOVATION was not just a once off event, however, a business. Through positive responses to our emails, we saw that there was an empty void that needed to be filled – which was the connectivity through simple conversation of entrepreneurs and start-ups in the two worlds: fashion & technology. New York Fashion Week is an iconic time internationally, where you get to see the aesthetics behind the collections on the runway. However, understanding the WHY/HOW is just as relevant,” said founder Marcelo Guimaraes.

“Technology is changing fashion through innovation. From how clothes are used, to how they are made, computing power is reshaping the industry – AI technology, NASA inspired textiles, GOOGLE engineered jackets, sustainable materials, etc. FASHINNOVATION will be facilitating conversations between fashion & technology through cutting edge content, so that we keep evolving,” says Co-Founder Jordana Guimaraes.
