The Fashion Hackathon
Saturday-Sunday, February 2-3, 2013
For the first time, 200 developers will come together for a hackathon competition focused on innovating Fashion & Retail. Teams will meet with leaders from top Fashion & Retail brands to discuss the biggest industry challenges and learn opportunities for new products and partnerships.
The challenge? Build the best app for America's most influential Fashion organization—the CFDA—for a cash prize.
The top three teams will be chosen by a panel of Tech judges, to pitch during New York Fashion Week. Each finalist will receive 10 days of mentorship, learning how to cater the tech pitch to a fashion audience. On Feb. 14, at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, one of the world's top Fashion stages, the teams will present to a panel of Fashion judges. The winning app will be launched for the CFDA.
Tech & Fashion Judges and prizes will be announced soon.
