What #Local #NYC #americanmade #Blackfashiondesigner and machine knit at an artisan level looks like

This is my WHY in #fashtech! leveraging technology to by-pass, #Patternmatchingss issues and give real local  designers on the Brooklyn scene some exposure. The bigger reason- tech can make tasks easier while Exposing and supporting the many extremely gifted artisan, crafters, designers and colleagues!

Leveraging technology to increase exposure and sales. for art, for craft for business!   

What if we used technology … to change how designers sourced?
Changed how they designed? 
What if they used technology to get better measurement, make and grade pattern. To cut the cost of how they show and sold.  tok orders invoiced , delivered… What if they used technology to train workers, teach what would that look like cradle to cradle the sector is changing yet few companies  spend the time SHOWING these entrepreneurs “How to!” 

Why aren’t they.
