Electric Runway has curated a number of conferences, networking events, showcases, and runway shows that bring the future of fashion front and centre for audiences.
For its spring 2018 season, Toronto Men’s Fashion Week (TOM*) wanted to add a technology component to their programming. They commissioned Electric Runway to curate and produce a wearable tech runway show. Collaborating with startups, emerging designers, as well as established brands like Apple, we treated a sold-out audience to a future noir experience inspired by science fiction.
ELECTRIC RUNWAY X MAKER FESTIVAL LAUNCH PARTY
In the summer of 2015, the Toronto Maker Festival sought an entertainment partner to liven up their opening party. They relied on Electric Runway to source and assemble a fashion-tech presentation showcasing both consumer products as well as concept and costume pieces that resonated with the maker community. The result was a full house and a spectacle that had audiences talking!
iN STORE: AN IMMERSIVE EVENT ON THE FUTURE OF RETAIL
In 2017, Electric Runway collaborated with the City of Toronto and the Design Exchange to curate and produce InStore: An Immersive Event on the Future of Retail. This evening event invited attendees to consider how emerging technology is transforming retail. Our demo areas showcased the latest in augmented reality, virtual reality, connected showrooms, and digitally enabled products. Following a cocktail reception with appetizers and catering from Daniel et Daniel, guests were invited to listen to a series of talks and fireside chats, including a keynote presentation from Deloitte. The sold-out evening was hosted by Electric Runway founder Amanda Cosco and DJ’d by Maya Kiltron.
