Amanda Curtis is Co-founder and CEO of Nineteenth Amendment, a platform that’s giving the fashion industry a makeover by combining a patent-pending virtual studio optimized for social media and consumer data aggregation with an on-demand US manufacturing service that young and emerging talent needs to bridge the gap between design and delivery.
As a designer turned entrepreneur, Curtis experienced firsthand how difficult it is to break into the fashion industry. After graduating from Parsons, she showed at New York Fashion Week, designed for celebrities, and brought a solo design collection to judging at London Fashion Week. The problem: she wasn’t financially successful. So she put her time and talents where her passion was: creating industry and innovation through technology that would lead to positive impact in the fashion industry. Nineteenth Amendment was born as a way to help designers break into the fashion industry with the least amount of time, effort, and money (stiletto-strapping), while growing manufacturing in the USA. Amazing concept!
