It's hard to imagine a more beautiful venue for yesterday's Startup Fashion Week event than Shopify's new 3rd floor of open space awesomeness. Not only was the room beautiful, but the lineup of talks from major industry leaders like Hudson's Bay's Ryan Craver on social media, e-commerce and what entrepreneurs can do to get their businesses off the ground were incredibly insightful.
