Hackathon

Over this past weekend, May 10-11, 150 programmers, entrepreneurs, graphic designers and industry experts came together to build tech that could solve relevant problems in fashion & retail. It all started with a chat with the British Fashion Council, AllSaints and Mary Katrantzou - clarifying details on how the industry works, and inspiring teams to strive towards solutions that could be applied in the immediate future.

After working for 24 hours through the night, many going without much sleep, 30 teams submitted their ideas for judging - a 3-hour-long process that boiled it all down to five top teams. You will see the best ideas on the stage today. With your help, we'll select the audience pick and the overall winner, which will be flown to San Francisco by AllSaints to meet with top industry players, and have its tech implemented globally by AllSaints, online and in store.

The Stats:

  • 30 apps were created
  • 200 hackers were registered
  • 150 participated until the end
  • 5 Finalist teams

The Finalists:

BESPOKY - Stylist matching PROVENANCE - Content at point of sale LOOP - Recreating wish lists SUFFRO - Enhancing the fitting room NUDGE - Connecting brands to Passbook

HONORABLE MENTION: (not eligible for top prize)

ALLSAINTS ROW - 3D immersion brand experience NIXI - Inventory data in real-time

The Finalists will pitch on stage on Tuesday May 13, to a panel of top judges from the fashion industry at the Decoded Fashion Summit.
