As a tribute to our Much Ado About Mobile event, this Pop-Ups Monday post will feature the three companies represented on our panel tomorrow, Fashion GPS, Women Innovative Mobile, and Gilt Groupe.
Discover, explore, and enjoy! – and register for our event if you haven’t already!
1. Fashion GPS
Fashion GPS was created to save design houses and PR firms from spending incredible amounts of time managing samples, creating and sending virtual look books, and generating press reports. The system manages the entire process and creates public relations and advertising reports for your company. The system is specifically designed for the fashion world and “works behind the scenes like a virtual employee.” The GPS Radar Network keeps you connected to fashion brands and relevant PR agencies. Fashion GPS clients include Kate Spade, Marc Jacobs, Fendi, Gucci, and Chanel.
We can’t wait to hear from Jennifer Jann, Director of Marketing, tomorrow!
The goal of this startup program is to provide women entrepreneurs with direction, feedback, and connections. WIM is a three-month mentorship-driven accelerator program providing companies with funding, office space, product development and design support, mobile-marketing promotions, and access to mentors, funders, and advisors.
The founder and managing director of WIM, Kelly Hoey, will be joining us tomorrow evening as one of our panelists!
3. Gilt Groupe
If you’re an online shopper, you’ve definitely heard of Gilt. This shopping experience provides a members-only, insider’s access chance for people to experience top designers at up to 60% off. The site has expanded from clothing to include home goods, exclusive local services, and travel packages. Gilt Groupe allows men, women, and children to make their dream designer purchases with the click of a mouse, at a fraction of the cost. We’re so excited to have Vice President of Mobile for Gilt Groupe, Yon Feldman, joining us tomorrow at our meet-up!
Thanks for joining us this Monday afternoon—we hope to see you tomorrow at 6:30 PM at The Fashion Center!

Pop-Ups Monday: Monday August 13
With summer winding down, it’s important to appreciate the last few weeks of fantastic weather. As a tribute to the end of the summer sun, we’re highlighting two fashion tech sites featuring the weather!
Discover, explore, and enjoy!
Sometimes (even after looking up the daily weather), it’s still hard to know what to wear. This site changes each day and is customized based on your current location. Simply click “Use my location!” or enter your postal code, and clothing items matching the local weather appear. If you like an item, simply click on the photo and you are immediately re-directed to its site. You can even select a day in the future and see, not only the weather prediction for that day, but also the collection of items recommended based on the predicted climate of that given day. Aside from getting great clothing recommendations based on weather predictions, the site allows you to discover new great online shopping sites!
This site offers up to 80 percent off of seasonal apparel when the weather gets below a certain temperature. Instead of dreading the snow, you’ll be begging for it to get cold enough so you can save on great winter gear! The beauty of the site is that it differs from your standard sale. The best sales normally occur on the off-seasons of whatever product you are purchasing. But in the case of Weather on Sale, the colder it gets in New York City, the lower the prices of winter gear. Let the countdown to freezing temperatures commence!
Thanks for joining us this Monday.
