Dressed to Code: Glamour Magazine to Hold Fashion Hackathon

Do you have a great idea for a digital fashion product? Join Glamour magazine for this rapid-paced full-day hackathon at General Assembly on September 7. Teams of co-ed developers will spend a day designing, developing and creating a game/app/tool that engage fashionistas around shopping, street style, or sharing outfit ideas.

Prototypes will then be demonstrated at an on-site event and a panel of judges from the fashion startup world will select the winning teams.

Date: Saturday, September 7th from 8:30 am to 8:00 pm

Prototypes will then be demonstrated at an on-site event and a panel of judges from the fashion startup world will select the winning teams.
