Fashion Tech Expert
My name is Amanda Cosco, and I live for fashion tech
In my career as a journalist, I’ve interviewed cyborgs and poured a beer tap with my brainwaves (it’s a tough job but someone has to do it). I’ve moderated panels on hacking hardware, wearables for women, and next-generation retail experiences. I've delivered speeches and keynote presentations on both local and international stages, and I've travelled all over the world covering stories at the intersection of fashion and technology. I would love to share my global perspective with you.

What People Are Saying
We had great pleasure hosting Amanda in Tallinn, Estonia on our first-ever FashionTech event. Amanda’s ability to talk about the field in layman’s terms was one of the reasons the event was such a success among our relatively inexperienced audience.
Mart BrauerDevelopment Manager, Incubator Tallinn
Amanda was a great host for our New York Summit. She has a vast knowledge of the fashion tech landscape and her passion for the subject matter shone through —making her the perfect candidate to stitch the event together. Her professional and positive demeanour kept the whole event focused and our audience engaged throughout. I look forward to working with her again!
Fay CowanBrand & Content Director, Decoded Fashion

Working with Amanda has helped us save time, money, and shortened our learning curve in the retail space.

Amanda is a visionary with a passion for retail, fashion, and the ways in which these industries are transforming.
She always has her eye on what’s coming next, which makes her an essential resource for anyone looking to future-proof their businesses. She is highly creative and interdisciplinary in her approach, and she’s all about enhancing relationships and pushing the industry forward. Amanda also has a great stage presence, which is why we chose her to interview fashion legend Joe Mimran on stage at the inaugural Takeover Toronto conference. We look forward to working with her again both as a speaker and contributor to client-facing projects and research reports.
