My name is Kasia Gola.
I’m IT and fashion observer, business and marketing strategist, so..Here I’m going to show you where fashion meets technology, social media and marketing. Im a founder and organiser of GGC Fash&Tech meetups, where we discuss fashion and technology issues and invite guestes from: Google, Chanel, Estimote, Zortrax, Zara, Elle.pl and more. My blog has been shortlisted to WGSN Global Fashion Awards 2015 for Best Digital Innovation.
I’m a photographer and also co-founder at Flowbox, where we designed world’s first functional programming language with two interchangable representations – visual and textual. Before that I’ve been working as Project Manager at K2Search (part of K2, Warsaw, Poland), a leading, Polish marketing agency. Few years ago I have managed of about 40 talented people at the Student Research Group MediaFrame and organized projects as: Artbuzz (conference about 2d/3d graphics and IT), KrakJam’11 (Polish edition of Global Game Jam), KrakSpot (barcamp about the new media), Animotion’09 (national animation contest for students), KrakOpen’09 (team programming challenge). I feel that it was one of the most amazing experience ever. I am also lucky to be one of the people who shaped KSAF – Students’ Photography Agency as it is now, and it is currently one of the most recognizable Students’ organization in Krakow. During studies I met many great young people, who co-created my life philosophy which is: to infinity and more. I graduated from Sociology and Multimedia Communication (AGH, Krakow). My B.A. thesis: image of women who read Vogue magazine in: Russia, France, USA. Master thesis: fall or evolution of fashion journalism (based on Vogue and Vogue.com example). Afterhours I like to engage in worthwhile initiatives, which practically consume a lot of my time. But give a lot of energy in return.
In the end of the day I am keen on reading and writing about culture and IT convergence, and technology in fashion industry seems to be my favorite topic. I really delight in reading Vogue magazine, which is obviously much more than just a magazine :).
I laugh a lot. A lot, a lot.
