Last night, over 100 people crowded into AtWood to celebrate the Future of Fashion with ShopDrop and TABu. Attendees included journalists, influencers, startups, designers, models and lots of fashion enthusiasts. Everyone had to download the ShopDrop app to enter the event, and the TABu app to get the free drink and experience new technology firsthand.

FRENZY AI Image Recognition Technology
Frenzy is an automated algorithm that identifies exact clothing in photographs. Using deep learning and computer vision, it’s able to parse through each item in a blog image to determine the exact brand, SKU and where it can be purchased. Instead of spending hours to several days curating product links, Frenzy lets publishers monetize site images with no manual work or added fees. There’s almost 300 fashion blogs and magazines signed up to use Frenzy’s WordPress Site Plugin with a combined audience reach of 34Million.

3. NINETEENTH AMENDMENT
Nineteenth Amendment lets independent designers sell directly to customers without traditional inventory and engage with shoppers in a way not previously possible. Shoppers, eager to obtain cutting-edge brands, find exclusive styles at below-retail prices by being one of the first to purchase. It matters because the fashion industry was made for this: connecting the patronage of style-conscious shoppers with designers with talent and beautiful designs that aren’t ubiquitous.
Perch InteractivePERCH is a startup intent on revolutionizing retail. PERCH unites digital content with physical products with the goal of maximizing engagement, capturing analytics and driving sales. Our patent pending sensing technology detects when shoppers touch and pick up products, and responds immediately with dynamic and compelling content
5. BRICK & PORTAL
Brick & Portal is a social commerce platform, which brings the true experience of shopping with friends online. Users can create and request unique outfits for any occasion specially designed for each other with the Brick & Portal app.
Brick & Portal allows users to request and curate outfits for each other from a robust cornucopia of items found at top retailers such as Saks and Bloomingdales. A fashionista can now not just get asked for obscure fashion advice on what to wear on a special occasion, but get a concrete request with budget and event in mind. For the curator, the process is like dressing a barbie, gamified and exciting, where a complete look can also be sent to someone outside of the network – naturally spreading the word about this great new way to shop with friends online.
Host: TABu App
Tabu App allows you to open and close your bar tab on your phone – no more forgotten credit cards or long lines to close out your bar tab at the end of a crazy night. Tabu is not an ordering platform. With TABu, the relationship between bartender and customer continues.
ShopDrop App helps NY fashion lovers discover sample sales so they can wear brands they love for prices they can afford. With the ShopDrop app, you will never have to pay full-price for designer clothes again.
