What is The Fashion Hackathon?

The world’s First Fashion Hackathon on February 2-3 will connect developers, designers and entrepreneurs with insider knowledge on the Fashion and Retail industries.

The goal?

To create an app with the most innovative ability based on the Council of Fashion Designers of America's mission of supporting the overall growth of American Fashion as a global industry. Registered teams will learn many pivotal industry issues prior to the event, and will have the chance to kick-off the Hackathon with THE FASHION BRIEF — a Q&A with famous designers and executives representing top brands — at 11 am on Saturday. They will open the Hackathon competition with a discussion of the industry’s hits and misses. Teams will also learn what solutions they are craving for, the types of startup pitches they like the most and the ones they do not.
