Fashion and Tech Gamechangers from Storefront x RePopRoom’s NYFW Brunch
We met some really thought provoking brands at the recent Storefront x RePopRoom “Fashion That Pops” Champagne Brunch event during New York Fashion Week. While getting to know the emerging brands, we joined other guests in indulging in glasses of bubbly and nomming on light brunch bites by rising (and hunky) chef Jordan Andino.
The first display that caught our eye was the setup by THINX, which introduced itself to us as an innovative, high-performance line of underwear. Long story short, the awesome minds behind THINX are working to break the taboo around menstruation that still exists around the world – and actually causes girls to miss school during what is known in their communities as a “week of shame.” To us, that sounds crazy – but it’s true. In addition to developing a super-underwear that will let you ditch the habit of checking your backside every time you stand up during “that week,” THINX funds seven washable, reusable cloth pads for one girl in the developing world for every pair of THINX purchased. Join the movement to empower women and learn more about THINX here.
We then ventured over to explore Soundwall – which is a combination of wall art and music in one product. The technology behind Soundwall allows it to stream music wirelessly from a range of devices and sources (including iTunes, Spotify, Pandora, and more) — and it’s dressed up behind a piece of art to hang on your wall. Pretty cool. Whether you choose an image from the gallery to be your music player and room decor in one or have Soundwall custom print an image, you won’t have trouble customizing this “techie art” to your own tastes. You can even choose to order a blank Soundwall to paint on for your own masterpiece.
