  • About Third Wave Fashion

    Third Wave Fashion was founded by in 2011 to help our clients manage the breakneck speed with which fashion and technology are converging.

    We’re not in this business because it’s trendy; we’re here because we’re experts.

    We don’t just focus on ‘digital’ or ‘2.0’; we have our sights set on the future. We look at all technology, online and offline, and how it’s changing the world. We have relationships with hundreds of fashion tech startups. We know what’s next.

    We believe in long term relationships with our clients. We learn and grow, and it’s our business to help them learn and grow, too. We work hard to add real and lasting value to our clients and to the world around us.

Above, our founder Liza Kindred talks about the world of fashion tech to Entrepreneur Magazine.
