Dressed to Code: Glamour's Fashion Hackathon

Because nothing is as chic as a clean line of code.

Saturday, September 7th from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm

Do you have a great idea for a digital fashion product? Join Glamour and the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) for this rapid-paced full-day hackathon at General Assembly on September 7. Teams of co-ed developers, designers, and entrepreneurial thinkers will spend a day designing, developing and creating a game/app/tool that engage fashionistas around shopping, street style, or sharing outfit ideas.

Prototypes will then be demonstrated at an on-site event and a panel of judges from the fashion startup world will select the winning teams.

Judges include:

Deena Varshavskaya, Founder & CEO, Wanelo

Heather Marie, Founder, 72Lux

Rebecca Minkoff, Fashion Designer

Rus Yusupov, Co-founder & Creative Director, Vine
