HubSpot, a customer relationship management platform for growing businesses, has teamed up with NTWRK, a live shopping platform in North America, for an exclusive fashion release at INBOUND 2022 hosted by Antoine Gregory, Founder of Black Fashion Fair, an innovative retail and editorial platform and community. HubSpot is a leading customer relationship management platform that provides software and support to help manage growing businesses. The platform includes marketing, sales, service, operations and website management. HubSpot’s goal is to accrue growth for these businesses by creating meaningful connections within their community. The company has partnered with NTWRK on a series of co-collaborations this year to celebrate the artists, designers and entrepreneurs who have decided to share their creativity with the rest of the world. NTWRK not only provides a platform, but also enables artists to make art through NTWRK’s video commerce platform to a wider audience while raising awareness and funding for underserved communities.
The fashion show, in partnership with Gregory and Black Fashion Fair, is designed to bring light to emerging black designers. Amy Marino, Global Head of Brand Marketing at HubSpot, said, “Antoine Gregory’s Black Fashion Fair is a great example of a company that puts its purpose at the heart of its mission and has evolved while maintaining its purpose. . We are inspired by Antoine’s accomplishments and thrilled to partner again with NTWRK to co-create a one-of-a-kind collection that amplifies these talented designers and their stories.
The exclusive collection features new designs from Antoine Manning (founder of Homage Year) and Nicole Zizi (founder of Nicole Zizi Studio), two designers who grow through their commitment to their brand, their communities and their customers. Products include Antoine Manning’s signature Mini Ova bag in HubSpot’s solaris orange, Nicole Zizi’s signature organic cotton hoodie with “grow better” logo, and a custom Nicole Zizi recycled patchwork denim jacket. All proceeds from the drop will be donated to the Brooklyn Sewing Academy, a program dedicated to addressing systemic issues in the design industry through education and training.
NTWRK CEO Aaron Levant said, “Our partnerships with HubSpot reflect our shared
commitment to elevating new creative talents to fans at the forefront of art and fashion. In our
third collaboration, we are proud to highlight various creators who face obstacles in business
development and exposure to trade, and to highlight the dynamism of Antoine Gregory and
commitment to advocate for change.
The third NTWRK and HubSpot drop will take place on September 9 during INBOUND, an annual meeting
event powered by HubSpot that brings together thought leaders from over 161 countries across
marketing, sales, customer success and revenue operations. The drop will launch live on the NTWRK app on September 9 at 1 p.m. ET. The event immediately follows the INBOUND Spotlight Stage at 12:15 p.m. with NTWRK CMO Jason Brown and Antoine Gregory.
