In a new video, veteran journalist Deborah Norville talks with fashionistas, celebrities, and business leaders at the Infor-sponsored Harper's BAZAAR ICONS event during New York Fashion Week and learns about go-to apps, beautiful design, and the synergy between fashion and technology.
Here are clips with music legend and newly named Icon of Style Mariah Carey, designer Sabine Getty, model Lindsay Ellingson, and others like these:
"The beauty industry is really ripe for innovation right now." — Hannah Bronfman, founder of Beautified
"Fashion trends are going to go faster and faster. As a retailer, it's very important that we keep pace and stay ahead of the customer." — Jeff Goethals, Ross Stores VP of operations
"The technology, and the whole concept of fast fashion, taking it from a concept, bringing it to life and bringing it to our customers' stores, it's very exciting, because we enable that." — Corey Tollefson, Infor SVP
"A big part of our business is innovation, and that's how we believe we'll keep our edge. Anything we can borrow from the technical world, from logistics in distribution to wearable, is really the future." — Shannon Wilson, founder of Lululemon
"Technology is a huge part of fashion because it's complex. Goods are made all over the world. Somebody has to find the right supplier, make sure the size, style, color combinations are right for the right stores in the right season, and that's what Infor software does." — Charles Phillips, Infor CEO
"Infor is a world-famous software company. They understand design, but more importantly, they understand the fashion industry, which is not so easy. We know hundreds of our clients who rely on Infor to run their organizations." — David Carey, president of Hearst Magazines
