For NYFW SS23, 360 MAGAZINE decided to emphasize emerging brands which showcase innovation. Many of which are owned and operated by marginalized and/or disadvantaged enterprisers.

GLAM SLAM

This year IMG curated an informative yet immersive activation, GLAM SLAM. It’s intended to offer invited Chase Sapphire card members, VIPs and special guests a curated conversation about fashion in sports, phygital sectors and diversity in the industry. Thus far, it’s been the most insightful engagement for a myriad of reasons. One, it’s an opportunity for you to gain an intimate interaction from relevant professionals while sipping on crafted cocktails. Two, you’re being introduced to viable entities across various sectors. Three, it’s the inaugural program so there’s a ton of surprises.

FASHION BOMB DAILY

This FBD presentation, hosted by Eva Pigford, was helmed by Harvard graduate and famous blogger Claire Sulmers. It offers a sneak peek into who’s next up in all things beauty and style while being surrounded by a small crowd of culture curators (Kevin E. Taylor, Vaughn Lowery) celebrities (Vivica A. Fox, Iyanla Vanzant) and design purveyors (Draya Michele).

BruceGlen was the crowd favorite. Their psychedelic colorways intertwined with geometric shapes will forever stain our brain like the popular Saturday morning cartoon, Scooby-Doo.
