Join Deborah Weinswig, Managing Director of Fung Global Retail & Technology, and leaders from the worlds of fashion, technology and investment banking at the latest edition of Fung Global Retail & Technology’s  Dining with The Disruptors Series – Breakfast with The Disruptors at PROJECT New York.


In today’s world of apparel, fashion trends are changing faster than ever, with designs moving from drawing board to store floors in a matter of days, not months. Influences are upending marketing and media norms, 3D fitting on virtual avatars is replacing physical mannequins, and stores are going cashier-free with “just walk out” technology. Hosted by Erik Ulin, President, Men’s Fashion at PROJECT and moderated by Weinswig, the panel will offer a lively discussion of these and other trends with a distinguished panel of experts:

  • Kenneth Harrell, Managing Director, Pharus Advisors
  • Atul Midha, CEO, Rubin Singer
  • Peter Rivera, Chief Experience Officer, Infusion
  • Nilofer Vahora, Vice President, Licensing & Product Innovation, REBECCAMINKOFF/URIMINKOFF
  • Julie Vargas, Director, Digital Solutions, Avery Dennison

An advocate for innovation, creativity and the implementation of cutting-edge technologies, Weinswig joined Fung Global Retail & Technology (formerly FBIC Group) in 2014 to offer her unique viewpoints on the disruptive technology trends and innovations that are reshaping the global retail industry. Recent reports issued by Fung Global Retail & Technology include “Business Wearables: A High Growth Segment in a Fast-Expanding Market” and “Gen Z: Get Ready for the Most Self-Conscious, Demanding Consumer Segment.” Fung Global Retail & Technology’s reports and analyses can be found at and
