20 Feb 130: Talking Chat Bots, AI, Sustainability & the Future of Fashion with Epytom’s Anastasia Sartan & Marianna Milkis-Edwards
Meet this week’s guest, Anastasia Sartan & Marianna Milkis-Edwards, co-founders of Epytom.
What you’ll learn
Remember Cher’s closet from Clueless? That’s the idea that inspired this chat-driven app. Epytom actually advises you what to wear for the day by asking intelligent questions and taking into account details like the local weather and what you’ve worn in images posted on social media. Find out more about – and how an interest in sustainable fashion led founders Marianna and Anastasia to create this high-tech style tool.
How you’ll be inspired
Your ability to ask for help can become your secret super power, says Anastasia. Asking for help can be hard for many entrepreneurs, but these founders say it can make all the difference. Listen and learn how Marianna and Anastasia were able to progress farther, faster by making asking for help part of their regular practice.
What you’ll tell your friends
So there’s this chat bot that can help you figure out what to where every day, and it’s just one example of how artificial intelligence could totally change the fashion industry. Oh and get this, this tool will analyze your social media images and those of influencers you follow to give you better and better fashion feedback and style suggestions over time.
Resource of the week
Meditation. Moments of silence are even more important when you’re busy building a brand. Marianna’s recommendation? Try the Calm app to help in centering her life.
