No other city embraces the intertwined relationship between fashion, technology, and the future more than San Francisco does. With the city being known as the hub where technology and fashion intermix, this year’s San Francisco Fashion Week ™ hosts a two-day Annual #DisruptFashion Hackathon. While a typical Hackathon is aimed toward computer programmers and developers, the #DisruptFashion' Fashion Hackathon invites participants off all backgrounds who are tech novices, fashion innovators and VR savvies. Our vision is to bring together individuals in a space where they can meet like-minded creatives and work together as a team. These teams will collaborate on a project and find solutions for industry Virtual Reality challenges including digital shopping, retail implementation, real-time tracking, closet monetization, luxury + e-commerce, and other VR challenges.
The event will give participants the opportunity to network with other Fashion/Tech and VR enthusiasts, designers, developers, business professionals, technologists, and futurists and will allow them to share their bright ideas with each other. Participants will also gain access to leading fashion/tech/retail industry experts as coaches and judges during the 2-day event.
