THE STORY…

THE WOMEN OF COLOR FASHTECH BRUNCH CAME TO FRUITION DUE TO THE LACK OF COMMUNITY AND LIMITED OPPORTUNITIES FOR WOMEN OF COLOR IN THE FASHION AND FASHION TECH SPACE. WE BELIEVE THAT COMMUNITY IS THE FOUNDATION OF PROGRESS AND SUBSEQUENTLY, SUCCESS. THE EVENT CONTINUES TO GROW IN NUMBERS AND IS HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DURING NEW YORK FASHION WEEK. 

 

The first WOC FashTech Brunch took place during New York Fashion Week at the exclusive Ludlow House in Soho in 2018. The event hosted the top women of color in the fashion and tech industries celebrating their successes and accomplishments, creating an intimate space for women to discuss their experiences with like-minded people. Most importantly, the event fostered an atmosphere of community among attendees. Guests participated in a panel discussion, brunch, open bar, and genuine networking. WE BLIEVE THAT WHEN WOMEN SUPPORT WOMEN, INCREDIBLE THINGS HAPPEN.
