London London Launches During LFW and Announces Fall 2014 Networking Events for Tech Entrepreneurs in the Wine, Food, and Fashion Sectors

New York, September 11th 2014 – London London Blog (LLB) launches officially during London Fashion Week and announces its Fall 2014 wine tastings geared to tech entrepreneurs in the fashion, food, and wine sectors.  Tech startups in the three sectors have gained traction in the last couple of years, with social sharing driving much of its growth. There is real appetite by investors and entrepreneurs alike to steer innovation, be it in direct to consumer e-commerce, image recognition software for spotting street fashion trends, or distribution and logistics for the food and wine sectors.

“In July the food tech sector alone saw investments in the order of $740m, and a third of this capital was for companies based outside of the US, with almost half of the funding going to seed stage companies.”, said Maya Plentz, Editor-in-Chief of the London London Blog.

“So it makes perfect sense that LLB launches in partnership with the new shopping website haveyouseen.com.” The community driven social shopping website will allow customers to not only shop and add great products, but also be rewarded for sharing with others. The site already has the backing of more than 3,000 big-name retailers, including Body Shop, with more joining every day.

LLB editorial focuses also on organic products and its sponsors for the launch are La Salceta, an organic winery from Tuscany, and the British organic skincare AEOS. La Salceta’s owner, Ettore Ciancico, who will introduce the wines at the launch, is known for his commitment to sustainable development in the region, as an advisor to the Federazione Italiana dei Vignaioli Indipendenti (FIVI). Ettore was one of the founders of the Val d’Arno di Sopra DOC, which aims to protect and promote the quality of the wines produced in Val d’Arno.

AEOS has developed a line of skin care of unsurpassed quality and has been gaining a following among the fashion set, as they look increasingly to purchase products that are as good for the environment as they are good for the one’s health and skin. LadyCPR represents them worldwide and will provide gifts to guests of travel size sets of AEOS facial line, London Fashion Week essentials, perfect for the handbag while shuttling between the fashion shows.
