Pitch Presenter: Soraya Darabi
About: "Zady began with a grand vision: to combat the fast-fashion craze by providing a platform for only those companies that care about timeless style and solid construction. At our roots, we are a collaboration between friends. Zady provides an alternative to today's "fast-fashion," as fad demanding consumers buy more and more instead of buying 'good.' We should not be compelled to accept throwaway goods as a way of life; we can instead take pride in the style and integrity of each and every piece we own."
A special thanks to...
Our wine sponsor, Evolution Wine
"Our goal is to make a wine that appears simple - easy drinking, relaxing - but in reality is quite complex. Producing a proprietary blend like Evolution is a combination of art and science. Our winemaker, Russ Rosner, says, "In over twenty years of winemaking this is by far the hardest wine I've had to make. It's like mixing nine different colors of paint and trying to end up with a rainbow instead of a muddy brown."
