Show Notes

Amanda Curtis began her career as a fashion designer – designing at New York Fashion Week for Diane von Furstenberg and Richie Rich as well as a number of A-list celebrities.

Then she saw an opportunity she couldn’t resist and took on a new challenge that has catapulted her to the Forbes 30 Under 30 List.

Amanda is the co-founder CEO of Nineteenth Amendment, a technology platform that gives fashion labels a smart way to break into the fashion industry. Undiscovered talent can get manufactured and into stores in the least amount of time, effort or money.

She characterizes her entrepreneurial journey as “stilletto strapping” – and she now has partnerships with more than 900 fashion brands in 29 countries as well as big retailers like Macy’s.

We talk about what it was like to pioneer in a pretty old-fashioned industry and what it took to raise capital.
