Expert Guest Panelists
We have some great guest panelists this year who work with the latest and greatest technologies concerning sewing and designing. I am excited to hear their ideas about what we can look forward to seeing with technology in the near future.
Past President of ASDP (Association of Sewing and Design Professionals)
Bonny has been fascinated by fit ever since she hit puberty and couldn’t get pants to fit her full thighs. She was dissuaded from pursuing her first love (she learned to sew when she was 4 and announced at 7 that she wanted to be a seamstress), and was encouraged to stay in school. After earning a bachelor’s degree from MIT, working on Wall Street, and earning a law degree from NYU, she started taking night school classes in Fashion Design while she worked as a NYC corporate attorney. She was the Director of Apparel Operations at EZSize.com, where she developed the (patented) original fit prediction algorithms on which True Fit is based. Bonny’s life’s work is developing a new method of clothing patternmaking that works from scan data to create garments that fit real people, enabling end-to-end mass customization of garments that truly fit.
President & CEO of DittoForm
Carol helps individuals who make clothing and costumes reach their full potential by providing a valuable tool – a custom dress form of their own body. She believes that each and every person is different — no one is standard — and that fact makes the world a more beautiful place. She credits her current success to the ability to acknowledge what she doesn’t know and find someone who does with her strong professional network. She draws on her experience in outwardly unrelated positions: supporting Fortune 500 corporate executives, connecting non-profit members with experience to those who need assistance, and entertaining and enlightening 8th graders and their teachers visiting Washington DC as a tour guide.
Carol believes that surrounding yourself with interesting people, cultivating creativity and innovation, and having a strong but flexible plan are the keys to happiness in life and success in business. She has a quirky sense of humor and a personal goal to find something that makes her laugh every day.
Physicist/Linux Geek/Lover of Penguins and Hawaiian Shirts
Troy helps create a major Linux distribution as his dayjob. At night he has mixed his love of Hawaiian Shirts and Penguins. In a true circle of life he is recognized in the Linux community as the guy with the Linux Penguin Hawaiian shirts. Troy has put his Casual Penguin designs on many types of fabric, for many types of projects. Enough people have asked him, that he is now sewing his Casual Penguins Hawaiian shirts for others, as well as himself.
