January 30, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Seattle Gents is excited to host our first event of 2019! The event will be a panel discussion about how fashion and technology intersect. The fashion retail and e-commerce markets have transformed as technology has advanced over the years. As a result, brands and influencers must think about how they can speak to consumers, especially as the tech industry continues to grow. This panel event is perfect for those who are involved in fashion tech or are a social media influencer looking to grow his or her following.

Special thanks to our sponsors Evergreens Salad and Dote who will be providing light bites for guests to enjoy. There will also be complimentary beverages available.
