FTF is an event that brings together thought leaders in technology, luxury, fashion and retail, founded by Karen Harvey Consulting Group and FLEX. This year's event was hosted by Amazon's Dimmock and fashion expert and former Yahoo Style editor in chief and creative officer, Joe Zee.

This year's FTF took place on October 6th in Culver City, CA. It was the first time the Fashion Tech Forum was held in the LA area, held previously in New York. The event moved to LA due to the city's growing reputation as "the new, vibrant hub for innovation not just in the entertainment industry but also in the areas of technology and fashion," FTF said.

The agenda included a seminar on "Millennials and The Store of the Future", with Hollister and Snapchat executives leading the discussion along with Joe Zee. An afternoon session on the "evolution of retail" was centered around Sephora, Stitch Fix and Sears, and again moderated by Zee. Apple's SVP of Retail joined Karen Harvey for a final fireside chat before the event wrapped.

Additional speakers at the event included Off White's Virgil Abloh; musician Will.I.Am; TechStyle's CEO Adam Goldenberg; Stitch Fix's COO Julie Bornstein; and Olivela's founder and CEO Stacey Boyd. Chief executives for Reformation and Khloe Kardashian's Good American spoke, as well as Sears' SVP for Customer Experience and Integrated Retail.

FTF is an invitation only event of 800 guests including CEOs, founders, creative directors, investors, and tech and fashion industry distruptors.
