/TESTIMONIALS from the presenters:

Thanks so much for letting me present last night - it was a great event! The Fashion Mash-Up Workshop was a wonderful and very educational night for me. I began to see right away the value of bringing together people in the local San Fransisco Fashion industry. From the skills and resources necessary for individuals in the fashion industry to promote themselves to the components of a successful fashion event (the significance of the venue being near and dear to me of course!), I learned a lot and met some truly interesting people. Thanks!  ~ Helen Belogolova @ Venuetastic

I very much enjoyed presenting at the FASHION MASH-UP yesterday. The audience was engaging and knowledgeable.  As the founder of VIZL, it was rewarding to see an audience of fashion professionals excited about using VIZL for social shopping.  I look forward to working with SFFAMA to bring technology, fashion and retail closer, as mobile and social networking become mainstream. Thanks! ~ Prosenjit Sen @

Thank you so much for inviting us to be a part of yesterday’s Fashion Mash-Up Seminar. We didn’t know quite what to expect and not being from the “fashion world” we thought we might be out of place. We couldn’t have been more wrong! Owen Geronimo and everyone involved created a space for us to fit right into. Not only were we well received but the ideas, concepts and solutions discussed were fresh new takes on issues that pertain directly to the challenges that our business is dealing with as well. Thanks again. ~ Troy Rutt, True Power Inc @
