ABOUT ELECTRIC RUNWAY

 

What started as a wearable technology runway show curated for the Maker Festival in Toronto has grown into a global brand synonymous with the future of fashion. Electric Runway was founded by Amanda Cosco in July of 2015 with the aim of exploring and showcasing the radical and surprising ways in which fashion and technology were colliding.

Since then, we’ve solidified our reputation as a leading voice at the forefront of the rapid transformation of apparel and retail not just in North America but around the world.

Today, we continue to shape the conversation through our events, reporting, podcast, and YouTube channel. We also share our expertise through our consulting services so others can benefit from our experience and global perspective.

Our mission is to provide inspiration and insights to help push the fashion industry into the future. Fashion as we know it, with its century-old ideologies and processes, is in the process of transformation. Rather than fearing disruption, we embrace it. We believe a more sustainable, transparent, and inclusive fashion industry is on the horizon. #TheFutureIsNow, and it’s not fashionable (or profitable) to be late.
