    Social commerce is more than driving traffic to a Facebook brand page. I was hoping to hear more about collaborative consumption models like Rent-the-Runway or crowdsource design models like Threadless. The panel focused a bit too much on the usual suspects of social media rather than introduce new fashion-tech innovators and ideas.
