Expert Presenters, Noted Brands, Creatives and Influentials Converged to Glimpse the Future



September 13- styleX 2016, the third in well-known style and tech TV correspondent Katlean de Monchy’s experiential series, provides audiences a means to discover and explore game-changing technologies that will be impacting consumer lifestyles through fashion, beauty and fitness. Katlean summarized the event in these terms, “Bringing disparate worlds in dialogue and igniting synergies between digital natives and the fashion scene is both fulfilling and inspiring.”  This year’s event, held September 8 added fuel to fashion by igniting a new conversation looking at fashion from the view point of digital files and digital content.  This unique experience stood out in New York Fashion Week 2016.


Several hundred affluentials and celebfluentials attended--including representatives from the Fashion Institute of Technology; designers Malan Breton and Maggie Norris; creatives such as stylist Montgomery Frazier as well as designers from Ralph Lauren and Coach brands.  New York notables and celebrities included American composer and instrumentalist Lucia Hwong Gordon; Flo Anthony, Lieba Nesis, Downtown Julie Brown, Iris Schwartz, and Countess Jocelyn Engle. Julianne Michelle a film and TV Actress attended along with Consuelo Vanderbilt Costin, singer, designer and philanthropist; and TV actress April Malloy.


styleX 2016 included a marketplace of noted brands, a thought leadership panel providing insights from 3D-printing design and fashion pioneers, a beauty keynote on skin-tightening technology, and a cocktail hour benefiting the American Heart Association. A sampling of rave reviews includes:




Susan Posen, Chairman, House of Z LLC, Zac Posen, “Nextpert assembled a terrific panel that opened the window on the convergence of fashion and technology.  The future is here.  As technologies evolve and develop, I am convinced that designers will collaborate with technologists to marry reproducible elements into wearable garments. 


Cimquest Executive Jim Snodgrass said, “styleX 2016 was a unique event that allowed us to advance the discussion on the growing uses of 3d printing / additive manufacturing in the fashion industry.  The connections that were made here will help keep us all learning and exploring the cutting edge of what is possible."


Francis Bitonti, Designer, Founder Francis Bitonti Studios said, “styleX is committed to strengthening the long term vision for fashion by opening the eyes of business owners to the new computational design techniques that will offer a new paradigm for design.  Studio Bitonti operates as a team design futurists and computational designers creating and producing new products and ideas for the augmented age.


Paulina Perepelkin, Founder of and BDM at GrabCAD said

stylex2016 offers a wonderful cross disciplinary platform where people of various expertise can come together and learn about exciting new technologies in a non-intimidating, approachable and hands on way.  Too often the conversation gets derailed by tech jargon, and it was very helpful to see the focus on products, customers and business possibilities.”


Sandra Gault, CEO & Founder True Gault praised the event in these words, "True Gault was excited to share our vision with so many people who, like us, believe that technology can play a dynamic role in fashion and style. Like many others designers at the event, our brand sits in between both tech and fashion. It is this combination of cutting edge technology, innovation, and style that made the event so exciting!"




Media expert Katlean de Monchy’s vision of styleX is born from her unique vantage point having covered fashion and technology for Reuters.  In addition to noted brands exhibiting tech, fashion and beauty offerings, informational presentations featured innovational leaders whose work illustrates the convergence of fashion, technology, beauty and culture.         


Thought Leader Panel: “Designing for the Augmented Age”

A tantalizing glimpse into the future of fashion as only avant-garde designers and other fashion and tech disruptors could deliver.  Presenters described why 3D technologies and computational tools are only the start of a massive rethink in the processes involving design, materials, and production of tomorrow’s fashion-centric products.
