Let's face it: the shows at Fashion Week are inspiring but really not the greatest places to network. You're invited to Websdays, the real-life social networking party that brings together the best and brightest for a night of cocktails and conversation.
This Websday, we're partying with three of our favorite startups in the fashion world: JackThreads, chloe + isabel, and Fashism. Expect stylish clothes, impressive New Yorkers, and music from our Keynote DJs that any model would want to strut down the runway to.
JackThreads is a members-only, online shopping club that curates top-tier street, skate, surf and contemporary men's fashion brands - offering daily sales of up to 80% off on what's hot right now.
chloe + isabel is an innovative jewelry brand that empowers and connects women through a social-shopping experience.
Fashism is an iphone app and web site that let's you get instant feedback on your fashion and style choices.
Websdays features an open Ultimat Vodka bar from 7:30-8:30pm. Must be 21+ to attend.
Aiming to create a fun, relaxed atmosphere that captures the spirit of Internet Week New York and encourages casual networking, the events will be open to only a limited number of guests each month. Tickets are $10 and are available at www.websdays.com. You must be at least 21 to attend.
The launch of Websdays comes on the heels of the most successful Internet Week New York yet. Held this past June, the fourth annual Internet Week New York attracted more than 20,000 people, including Senator Chuck Schumer, Mayor Michael Bloomberg, Ashton Kutcher, Arianna Huffington, and Lisa Kudrow, to over 250 conferences, meetups, exhibits, and parties across the city.
“Unlike other cities, New York City’s tech community is extremely diverse, with innovative work happening across the board – from media, startups, and the arts to fashion, finance, and government,” said David-Michel Davies, chair of Internet Week New York. “We wanted to create a year-round event that captures the festival’s spirit and becomes a place where people from across the community can meet and share ideas over a few cocktails.”
"Websdays is a networking event for anyone on the web — welcoming developers, digital marketers, bloggers and entrepreneurs,” said Blakeley. “But unlike crowded parties with long lines and limited space, Websdays is an exclusive soiree with plenty of room to promote conversation over cocktails."
