Ghanaian-born designer Mimi Plange was recently invited to The White House, the official residence and principal workplace of the President of the United States to discuss a Fashion Tech venture.
Read below her Facebook post.
Last Monday, Kenya Wiley, Founder and CEO of Fashion Innovation Alliance invited us to attend a meeting at The White House to discuss Fashion Tech and it’s future. We were honored to meet with a group of amazing individuals who all have a passion for Fashion and Technology along with one of my long time favorites and super supporter, Professor/Director Susan Scafidi of The Fashion Law Institute.
Check out the Fashion Innovation Alliance led by Kenya Wiley. Prior to working in the private sector, Kenya served as Counsel and Senior Policy Advisor for the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs. In this role, Kenya provided legal and policy analysis on key legislative issues, including cybersecurity, postal delivery and logistics, federal IT, and labor and employment. She is amazing!
More to come on our new Fashion Tech Venture!!!!
