October 2014 - FashTechLDN meets Bootlaw

Dear Bootlawyers For our October event Bootlaw has teamed up with FashTechLDN (www.fashtech.org) to bring you an event all about fashion and technology.

Our first speaker will be Alex Semenzato. Having hosted FashTech events in collaboration with Google and Net-A-Porter, meeting with the latest and emerging fashion/tech start-ups around the world - Alex will explain why Fashion and Technology is such a hot emerging industry right now and share his insights on the developing trends and types of innovation we are seeing within the fashion and technology industries from both a b2c and b2b perspective.

FashTech aims to drive creative partnerships between fashion and technology start-ups and provide a platform for the latest innovations to be showcased to leading brands and retailers.  Since February 2014, FashTech started revolutionizing the fashion technology world; one event at a time. First London, then spreading to San Francisco, and now the latest project - FashTech NYC which launched this September during New York Fashion Week. With over 3000 members in the FashTech community, with interests spanning from wearable technology, to e-commerce and even 3D body scanning: 2014 has fast become the year of fashion tech with even more to come in 2015.

Our second speaker will be Rebecca Mitton, a brands and IP specialist with Pinsent Masons who will consider the opportunities and pitfalls surrounding the ever expanding use of new technologies within the fashion industry.

When:  Wednesday, 22 October, 6:30pm for a 7pm start.
