Authentic Or Not is a patented technology that enables products to talk. It provides product authentication with storytelling capabilities for brands without impacting the look and feel of merchandise. Without requiring an App, anyone can hover a smartphone over the product and see a story, product information, authenticity, videos and more.
Ashley Barby grew up in Alberta with a passion for fashion and her early sights set on Toronto (or even New York). With degree in hand, and the experience of a plum job with Holt Renfrew, she followed her heart and headed East. Her journey has taken her into the fascinating world of fashion and technology, including the launch of her own online luxury shopping company for authentic pre-loved designer items. She has taken unexpected turns with two technology start-ups, most recently in the fashion technology space as Chief Operating Officer with Specsy - manufacturers of custom 3D printed fashion eyewear.
Through her blog, Sunny with Coffee, she shares positive vibes on life, entrepreneurship and lifestyle. Community engagement, from supporting local fashion colleges to mentoring new entrepreneurs, is at the heart of Ashley’s commitment to make the world a better place – and is also the driver behind her launch of FashionTech Toronto, a forum to connect innovators and leaders in the fashion and tech fields.
