“Never go to the mall again,” is the mantra of startups who are setting their sights on disrupting the $200 billion dollar apparel industry.

Through new sourcing technologies and differentiated approaches to big data, next generation retail startups are providing a personalized fashion experience that is scalable and accessible through the click of a button.

What has conventionally been the most subjective of all retail verticals is now being mastered by entrepreneurs with this new data centric approach.  Consumers far from Rodeo Drive or Savile Row can now experience personalized fashion that is reflective of their style and custom tailored to fit to their body, shape and size.

Questions to be addressed by our panel include:
  • How will our shopping experiences change based on this new revolution of mass personalization?
  • Can a personalization company for the mass market also be efficient, accurate, and scalable?
  • Can inventory risk be mitigated with this new model of retailing?
  • With investments in apparel ecommerce declining, how are investors perceiving this new wave of personalization in apparel?

Join us on Tuesday, April 15th, as we discover how retail startups are redefining our pre-existing notion of commerce.
