On Thursday July 17th, 2014, OLC attended Fashion + Tech event in San Francisco. At this event a handful of startups that are targeting the fashion industry gave demos of their product or service to the crowd.
Alexey Semeney, CEO and Co founder gave the pitch for AtContent. What Alexey is aiming to do is making blogging viral again, especially for the fashion blogs. What they have done is created a viral sharing button that when pressed it shares the blog to your own blog.

Firouzeh Lorzadeh is the Founder of Nifty, which is a new mobile app to help you with online shopping.
Shopping online is a challenge; standard sizing is not really standard sizing. This is a big issue when you order stuff online.
You can use the Nifty mobile app to scan you body and get size recommendations and if that product doesn’t seem like a good fit the app will not return any suggestions and you know buying the item might be risky. Nifty aims to work with more brands to get their app capable with the brands sizing charts.
Seth from Targeting Mantra came on stage to talk about his startup.
Current online shopping experience can be poor. When you go to a website to purchase some clothing and I click on a jacket, I want to see items that are similar or compliment the item I’m currently looking at.
Targeting Mantra knows what kind of stuff you look at on a website and provide better items that the user might want to buy. More relevant offerings can increase the amount of items people purchase when on your website.
