FashMash celebrated its 10-year anniversary with its community in London this week, welcoming founding members through to new mentees.
It has been a full decade since FashMash began as a small networking event for 20 fashion fledglings working at the cutting edge of the digital revolution. This week we were joined by founding members through to new mentees to celebrate at The Other House in South Kensington, London, alongside our sponsor Klaviyo.
What a journey it has been! In 10 years we have hosted:
⚡ 61 live industry discussions
⚡ 57 networking events
⚡ 40 Pioneers speakers
⚡ 27 roundtables
... All across 7 cities - from London to Los Angeles!
This with thousands of different community members, speakers, partners and now friends, the world over. In the past couple of years, we have also welcomed 24 mentors and 24 mentees as part of our Young Pioneers programme - a burgeoning area of FashMash that will continue through 2023.
Our focus has always been on connecting the leaders and changemakers shaping the future of fashion. FashMash is nothing without the community it is built upon, so thank you to all of you for being part of this evolution. Where once this was about each of us understanding and helping to carve out our place in the digital transformation, today it is of course about the sustainable transition. We’re proud to continue connecting and nurturing relationships between those driving forward to this new future.
A special thank you on that note then goes out to our team Ashedzi Ayuba-Kuwu, Frederica Brooksworth and formerly Hannah Reed.
And thank you to those who made this week's anniversary party such a huge success: The Other House South Kensington for the venue, incredible canapés and delicious cocktails and Maison Mirabeau for the La Folie sparkling rosé. Finally, thank you to our sponsor Klaviyo, without whom, none of this would be possible.
Here’s to another 10 years!
