Liz Bacelar

Liz Bacelar simply cultivates community and highlights fashion tech companies globally. A former Emmy-nominated CBS News producer, she brings together her considerable fashion Rolodex and tech founders – and the twain meet at Decoded Fashion, the top global event series focused on connecting emerging technologies and decision-makers in Fashion, Beauty and Retail. Its groundbreaking summits in New York, London and Milan are produced with top industry partners, including CFDA, British Fashion Council, IMG and Pitti Imagine. DF Meetups are hosted in 12 countries.

And then there’s the Fashion Hackathon. In February 2012, Decoded hosted the fashion world’s first large-scale hackathon, with the Council of Fashion Designers of America, inviting 650 technologists to New York to meet design and digital product challenges from a panel of fashion experts. The five finalists went on to present at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week.
