Spotlight: New York Fashion Tech Lab (NYFTL)

On June 8th, 2018, InStyle Magazine posted an article on 9 Women Who are Changing The Face of Fashion With Technology, featuring our CEO, Fang Cheng. 

Fang was listed first amongst the female talent who are tackling retail challenges with software services. 

The New York Fashion Tech Lab is a four-month-long program focused on female-led brands that find themselves innovating at the intersection of fashion, retail, and technology.

Through various competitions, Fashion Tech Lab, along with venture capital firms, entrepreneurs, and retailers, select six to ten companies to enter the official program (think of them as the "winners"), who get access to a network of mentorship, resulting in typically unaccessible meetings with industry executives.

Picture this: A busy Mom is on her way to the grocery store, with 2 kids in the back seat asking about snacks. One wants an apple juice, the other wants a cheese stick. As she parks the car and gives the kids their snacks, she has a moment to catch up on the three things that are on her mind: 1 - The playdate she's hosting this weekend, 2 - Lunches for the family, and 3 - The new dress her daughter wants to wear at her friend's birthday party next Sunday. The first two are momentary thoughts, the latter, is a pause filled with concern that what she has ordered online might not make it in time. It will stir a fight if she has to convince her daughter to wear something from the wardrobe.
