Cheers! The Founders Of R29, Net-A-Porter, & More Toast The Future Of Fashion-Tech

Natalie_Massenet
Fashion's love affair with technology has come a long way since R29's inception in 2005. Just ask the people behind Decoded Fashion London, an event held on November 1 that's assembling fashion-tech's forefathers and -mothers to help launch the next e-comm MVPs with a 50K prize package from Index Ventures. Yep, we're willing to bet that they'd tell you the same thing: the fashion-tech relationship is well beyond Facebook official.
The gang's all going. Natalie Massenet will be a focal point (as the founder of Net-A-Porter, she's the event's official honoree), but other head honchos from industry power players, like Facebook, ASOS, WWD, Tumblr, Moda Operandi, and even our very own founder, Philippe von Borries, will be on hand. They'll all convene at The Royal Society to offer time-tested expertise and executive input for the group of 10 startups pitching their projects. Purchase your ticket here, and let the games begin!
