Hackathon Revamps The Online Fashion World
At NYFW's Dressed To Code, developers, fashion experts, and entrepreneurs collaborated to create fashion software projects.
Fashion and technology came together in a fashion hackathon held this NYFW at General Assembly in New York City.
The event brought together programmers and general software development enthusiasts to collaborate on projects and come up with programs and apps related to the fashion world.
The hackathon, aptly titled Dressed to Code, was hosted by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and Glamour Magazine, and attended by fashionistas, designers, and entrepreneurs. Software developers from Glamour, Facebook, Tumblr, Gilt, and Aviary also attended the event to provide their technical expertise. Unlike typical hackathons, more than half of the event participants were women.
