DETAILS
Bloomberg, Cornell Tech, & Tech:NYC invite you to join us for the latest installment of the Cornell Tech @ Bloomberg series, featuring Ganesh Srivats, CEO of Moda Operandi, in conversation with Scarlet Fu of Bloomberg Television.

Founded in 2010 by Lauren Santo Domingo & Aslaug Magnusdottir, Moda Operandi allows customers to shop for clothes as soon as they appear on the runway. The company has raised nearly $300 million in venture capital, while transforming the relationship between fashion designers & consumers. Traditionally, those consumers only had access to pieces when they appeared in stores, months after they were selected by industry buyers. Moda's trunkshow model lets customers purchase any piece from a designer's collection, allowing them to play a direct role in determining which items shown on the runway make it into production.

This approach not only provides consumers with earlier access to more designs, but also gives Moda valuable intelligence about what will be trending in the upcoming season. Since Ganesh Srivats became the company's CEO last summer, he's been employing this data-centric approach to drive Moda's business & growth, which is currently targeting expansion to China. Moda recently released its first ever Runway Report, a forecast of this fall's trends based on its customers' behavior on its site (capes will be in, corsets out).

We hope you'll join us for this conversation, in which Srivats & Fu will discuss his transition from launching cars at Tesla to making designer collections more accessible at Moda, the convergence of data, artificial intelligence, & fashion, the benefits of bypassing fashion's traditional gatekeepers, Moda's role in the emergence of new designers, & what New Yorkers will be wearing this fall.
