Pavan Bahl, Founder, Open Source Fashion
New York is been a town driven by fashion long before the first week Fashion Week in 1943. In fact, according to a report by the Global Language Monitor, New York was named the Fashion Capital of the World in 2014, and Pavan Bahl is one of the centers of New York’s fashion tech world. As it should be: he’s one of the innovative thinkers and more importantly doers who is leading the movement of fashion into the digital generation, and again known by one and all simply as ‘Pavan.’ He has built a global community through OS Fashion, a platform that brings together a community of helpful innovators working within fashion, retail, and technology. In addition, to regular events OSFashion hosts a unique Freestyle Conference twice a year that brings in the luminaries from all over the fashion tech world.
As if that isn’t enough, Pavan has now teamed up with with Andrew Young to launch a global Startup Weekend Fashion battle, with competitions in New York, London, Milan and Paris.
Pavan is one of the nicest, most genuine people we have ever had the pleasure of meeting within the NYC ecosystem – and he is a master connector. If you are doing anything in the fashion space, this is the awesome guy you need to know.
Keep up with Pavan:
