    Hi Alex another amazing event yesterday... do you think in the future you might organise a meetup for developers looking to meet fashion start-ups?! Like speed dating to find a technical co-founder? Thanks!

    Hi All,
    A very cherished ipad 2 was lost tonight, it's black with a black leather cover. If anyone saw it or saw someone leaving with it, please get in touch ([masked][masked]) Apologies for clogging up the message board, thanks

    So err, I am signed up to this and I'm intending to come. Do I need to print anything or can I just turn up? When I click print ticket it just takes me to a page that says they are sold out, but I am RSVP'd as Yes and I'm pretty sure I was one of the first to do so, before you'd even finalized the venue!

      Hi Mital, we emailed members requesting to sign up via Eventbrite due to FashTech June being a larger event. No probs, you're on the list - look forward to meeting you later

    Unfortunately I can't attend - I just cancelled my "order" on EventBrite, so that might mean a spot has opened up. Have a good one.

    I have posted a message earlier when applications were requested. Do we have to pay to talk about our fashion startup? I represent a bootstrapped (not funded) but a killer fashion tech startup. Let me know if we could get a chance to speak for free. I bet you will not be disappointed.
