“A dinner for London’s fashion startups to break bread, network, share contacts & experiences”
Oh, what a night! Last night we teamed up with fashion startup SilkFred, to host “Fashion Startups Meet & Eat” at Central Working in Google Campus. It was the second in a series of industry dinners, following on from TableCrowd’s Food Startups “Meet & Eat” last month.
21 diners joined the dinner comprising some of London’s most exciting fashion startups, as well their journalist, PR & blogger guests. For the startups, it was a great networking opportunity and for their guests, a one off opportunity to meet everyone on the scene in one night.
TableCrowd was joined by:
- Upper Street
- Chloe Digital
- Designer Look Book
- Connected Generation
- Bossa Studios
- Elie C Atelier
- Tech City News
- Entrepreneur Country
- London Fashion Bloggers
- Like Love Buy
- Lion’s Cage
- & Various fashion bloggers
There were reception drinks and a chance to mingle before sitting to feast on a summer picnic spread. Both TableCrowd and SilkFred as hosts gave short introductory talks as did Karolina Plent from Taylor Wessing, the event sponsors. Taylor Wessing is an international law firm with specialist tech knowledge and thankfully for the budding entrepreneurs in and around Tech City, it has a team of lawyers helping start-ups. It also has a dedicated microsite called “TWTechFocus” which contains free investment related documents that highlight key funding issues for entrepreneurs. Karolina is a Senior Associate at Taylor Wessing, with a fashion & retail specialism.
After everyone had eaten and drunk their fill, we took turns for each diner to take a few moments to introduce themselves, their startup and their connection with the fashion world.
A massive thanks to artwork sponsor, nerv and event sponsor Taylor Wessing for being part of the second in series of dinners for startups. Thanks also for Central Working for being tremendous hosts. The next dinner in the series will be on 14 August and will be for women startups, full details to be announced soon.
