For their August event, WWTO is focusing on the future of fashion and has teamed up with Best Buy for an event unlike any other. Discover demos and innovations exploring the intersection of fashion and tech, featuring presentations, panels and an expo featuring Fossil, Myant, Sensoria, Klothed, Modiface, and more.
