Fashinnovation has launched an advisory board to assist in the growth and success of its international platform as well as global events focusing on sustainability and innovation in the fashion industry.
Shawn Hazan, formerly commercial director at Informa Markets, where his responsibilities involved overseeing cultural and operational alignment of the business, commercial development, event execution and developing sustainability initiatives across the fashion portfolio, is one of the advisors brought on by Founders Marcelo and Jordana Guimaraes to assist in commercial growth and strategic development of the platform. Fashinnovation has also contracted Hazcomm, a strategic advisory group founded by Hazan, to design blueprints to assist in navigating change and ensure cultural relevance.
“I am honored to join the board of Fashinnovation. There is no better time to blend fashion and technology with purpose,” said Hazan. “Jordana and Marcelo have been authentic to that vision from the first day we met, and I am excited to provide strategic positioning for what is undoubtedly a vanguard in an industry disrupted.”
Larry Namer, co-founder of E! Television and founding partner of Metan Global Entertainment Group, has been brought on as an advisor to assist with the growth of the content platform as well as online events and overall strategy. Namer is also the co-founder of recently-launched lifestyle platform BeautyKween as well as recently-appointed chief operating officer at Fanvestor.
“I see Fashinnovation as the modern day solution to the changes the industry is going through,” Namer said. “The pandemic changes the game not just now but, I believe, forever. The ability to tie all of the pieces together of this very complex industry in a thoughtful and professional way make Fashinnovation a unique resource to propel the fashion industry into the new normal.”
Fashinnovation has pivoted to online since COVID-19, and the board of advisors was built to develop the next phase of Fashinnovation events and content.
