26 Mar How Fashion Technologist Anina Net Turned A Top Modeling Career into a Fashion Tech Business (Plus, Life in China Right Now)
What happens when you interview a top model-turned-fashion technologist who’s lived through the COVID-19 outbreak from her outpost in Beijing? Well, this conversation is what happens. If I have a hunch, and I do, you’re going to be both entertained and inspired by what this week’s guest has to say about the world right now — as well as her journey into a career turning technology into fashionable wearables and her current love for virtual events.
Hailing from a computer-savvy family that prized playing with technology from a young age, this week’s guest has worked with Nokia, Samsung, Intel, IBM and many more to apply the latest technologies to the fashion industry. As executive producer of some of the largest fashion tech event organizers in China — including the China National Garment Association — this female founder lives to combine fashion, industry, startups and the connected future of fashion with results that are eye-catching and conversation-worthy.
Adding to the conversation is this: last year, she became obsessed with virtual communication tools long before many cities in countries all over the world ended up on lockdown due to the global COVID-19 outbreak, one that’s led many events and companies hosting events to migrate online. During the show, she dives into what led her to embrace virtual meeting and conference tools before they became a global necessity, as well as what she’s doing with them now to advance the future of fashion and technology — starting with this week’s Digital Fashion Summit.
Meet this week’s guest, Anina Net, founder of 360Fashion Network.
