Part tech, part marketing, ALL Fashion. Amanda intends to make the fashion industry better for everyone, from designers and consumers, to manufacturers and buyers. As a designer turned entrepreneur she experienced first hand how difficult is is to break into the fashion industry. After graduating from Parsons Amanda had success, from showing at New York Fashion week to designing for celebrities and bringing a solo designed collection to judging at London Fashion Week. The problem was the lack of financial success. She came up with Nineteenth Amendment as a way to help designers break into the fashion industry with the least amount of time, effort, and money (stiletto-strapping), while growing manufacturing in the USA.
Before Nineteenth Amendment she worked as a fashion designer for notable design houses, watched her work go down the runway at Lincoln Center, and dressed celebrities like Ellen DeGeneres. I also worked for many tech startups, primarily in biz dev and retail marketing positions. Her true passion is creating industry and innovation through technology that will lead to positive impact in the fashion industry.
