Here at StyleCaster, we love nerds. Like, a lot. But you know what’s more fun than nerds? Techie nerds. In a fashion show.
So when StyleCaster was asked to join the hosting committee of Raise Cache, last night’s event that brought together the digital world’s finest for a full-on fashion show, we jumped at the opportunity.
In support of HackNY, which helps students become start-up studs, techies rushed the doors of New York’s Armory to watch everyone from media mavens to venture capitalists strut down the runway. StyleCaster’s very own editor Susie G (or, as I like to call her, StyleCaster’s resident expert in all-things hip) styled the finale line for the show.
Including illustrious sparkles from Chloe + Isabel in every look, Susie carefully dressed each Silicon Alley-cat in everything from Rodebjer and Feminine & Masculine to Vans X Jesse Jo, making sure her very own pairs of creeper shoes and Frye boots made the catwalk cut.
The best part of the event? Seeing StyleCaster’s Pres and co-founder @David_Goldberg rock the DJ booth at a turntable.fm contest against the likes of Courtney Boyd Myers (TheNextWeb), Dennis Crowley (foursquare), and Fred Wilson (Union Square Ventures).
