On the opening day of New York Fashion week, having a place to go where you can mingle with guests, learn about new products and grab a bite and a drink is always a good idea. Fashion and technology merged at the StylexTech event, where celebrity guests mingled with innovators in the style/tech space where brands like LG and Brother sponsored the event and showed off their new wares. Fashion and technology have come so far in the 21st century and and it’s even better when fashion meets tech in a more hands-on intimate setting.
I was the resident LG “Stylist” where on display was the revolutionary new LG Styler clothing care system, which refreshes clothes at the touch of a button, without harsh detergents, providing an ideal solution for both everyday clothing such as suits, coats and sweaters, as well as hard-to-maintain pieces. I could have used this item every morning of fashion week while I was making my morning coffee.
Produced by Katlean de Monchy NEXTPERT styleXtech showcased innovation in technology, fashion and beauty. Andi Dorfman and Project Runway’s Anthony Ryan Auld, were in attendance and showed off their passion for sewing and ability to turn out some fabulous fashion-forward looks especially the new Brother TheDream Machine™ where you don’t need to take sewing 101.
Here are some pictures from the event:
