We’re thrilled to announce that Nineteenth Amendment is one of eight, out of 127 applicants, chosen for the first class of the New York Fashion Tech Lab. NYFT Lab is backed by venture-catalyst Springboard Enterprise and the Partnership Fund for New York City.  From May through July we will be working closely with senior level mentors from Macy’s, Alex & Ani,  Ann Inc., Estée Lauder, J.Crew, Kate Spade & Co., Marc Jacobs/LVMH, and Ralph Lauren Corp.  We are excited to learn best practices across branding, operations,  marketing and more from some of the top fashion industry experts and pass along these insights to the next industry leaders – our talented crop of fashion designers!

Over the next three months we will be working out of The Alley in the heart of New York City’s Garment District, alongside seven other innovative fashion tech startups.  The program culminates on July 24th with a Demo Day presentation in front of an audience of venture capitalists and industry executives. Stop by and say “hi” post launch this May to let us know what you think and wish us luck for demo day!
