Open Source Fashion started in New York City in April 2011. We have cultivated communities of helpful fashion, retail, and tech innovators in NYC and DC, and now look to do the same in Boston!

The idea of the OSF Meetup group is to bring like minded people together to openly share ideas, contacts, and expertise with each other for the benefit of the entire meetup community, and our individual projects.

The continuous emergence of new technologies and products are constantly changing how businesses are being conducted. Whether you represent a fashion brand, e-commerce portal, boutique, or fashion media outlet - we all have our own area of expertise. Keeping up with all the tech tools, unique brands, and resources available to us can be daunting - however, it does not have to be! Every 6-8 weeks we will organize an event that will make learning and collaborating enjoyable and light hearted.

Events will include panel discussions, social mixers, and activities geared towards educating our community and uncovering collaborative opportunities within our member base. Panel discussions will cover various aspects of business development, and will consist of "experts" in their respective fields (Technology, Merchandising, Sourcing, Branding, Social Media, photography, SEO, etc).

Join our group to keep in the loop. We look forward to meeting, learning, and growing with everyone! If you have any questions or are interested in sitting on a panel - feel free to contact us, and we will be more than happy to discuss!

Whether it is sharing ideas, sharing referrals, networking, or just hanging out, we all thrive on the flow of ideas, people and relationships.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
