PRODUCT PRESENTATION BY:
Stylematic is the brainchild of eight fashion forward innovators from Start Up Weekend San Francisco. Have you ever stared at your closet and felt like you had nothing to wear? Do you hate shopping because you don’t know what to buy? What if you had a virtual stylist who kept track of your closet, delivered recommendations and deals, and helped you review your choices with friends. This is the idea behind Stylematic, an app that helps you shop smarter. Scan the bar code of an item and Stylematic compares the item to existing pieces in your virtual wardrobe. Knowing your style and color preferences, Stylematic delivers recommendations and deals for other items, as well as comparable deals from nearby stores. Stylematic makes outfit selection is easy and social. Integrate with your online profile and browse friends’ closets, consult style mavens, and receive feedback on her purchases.

Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of Fashion+TECHSF Seminar. We didn’t know quite what to expect and not being from the “fashion world” we thought we might be out of place. We couldn’t have been more wrong! Owen Geronimo and everyone involved created a space for us to fit right into. Not only were we well received but the ideas, concepts and solutions discussed were fresh new takes on issues that pertain directly to the challenges that our business is dealing with as well.Thanks again.

Thank you SFFAMA! It was a pleasure to present our product at FashionTechSF. The feedback and encouragement we have gained from the experience is invaluable. Our team is more inspired than ever, and eager to serve the needs of local fashion merchants and designers in San Francisco… and the world! The FashionTechSF was our initial product presentation (www.omgiluv.it) and we were very happy with the results. SFFAMA is one of the best resources for anyone in the Bay Area interested in networking with remarkable entrepreneurs in fashion and design. The community SFFAMA is creating in San Francisco is second-to-none, a truly diverse and positive group of fashion savvy doers. I’ve learned so much from attending the FashionTechSF from the incredible speakers who provide invaluable insight on how to effectively navigate the trials and tribulations facing the go-getters of the Bay Area. I’ve also garnered wonderful friendships and colleagues who continue to inform and inspire.
