Our Contributors

The Interline is written by a growing roster of fashion technology veterans, emerging voices, and established talents who write elsewhere but go into greater detail for our dedicated fashion technology audience than they do elsewhere.

We are committed to providing an outlet for as many different perspectives on the adoption of technology in the fashion retail industry as possible. The Interline is proud to have a range of different voices speaking through our platform, and we are actively growing our contributor base throughout 2021.
