FRI Showcasing at PDMA Global Conference

It’s been a while since we’ve posted. Gosh, we’ve been busy! So much going on at FRI this summer. Just wanted to pop in and share our excitement about an upcoming event this Fall.

Fashion Research Institute was selected by the Product Development and Management Association to showcase our work with Virtual Runway(TM) and Black Dress Design Studio.  The PDMA is hosting the 34th Annual Global Conference on Product Innovation October 16-20th in Orlando, FL.

One of the keynote speakers is Janet A. Carr, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Customer Engagement – Coach, Inc.  I can’t wait to see what she has to say about innovation and fashion !

I’m personally excited that I’ll also get to see the infamous Dan Pink speak. Okay, not as excited as the fact that we were chosen to showcase, but certainly a close 2nd.
