HubSpot, a customer relationship management platform for scaling companies, partnered with NTWRK, a North America livestream shopping platform, for an exclusive fashion drop at INBOUND 2022 curated by Antoine Gregory, founder of Black Fashion Fair, an innovative retail and editorial platform and community. HubSpot is a leading customer relation management platform that provides software and support to help manage growing companies. The platform includes marketing, sales, service, operations, and website management. HubSpot’s focus is to accumulate growth for these companies by creating meaningful connections within their community. The company has partnered with NTWRK on a series of co-collaborations this year to celebrate artists, designers and entrepreneurs who have decided to share their creativity with the rest of the world. NTWRK is not only providing a platform but is also allowing the artists to make art through NTWRK’s video-first commerce platform to a broader audience while raising awareness and funding for underserved communities.
The fashion drop, in partnership with Gregory and Black Fashion Fair, is designed to bring light to emerging Black designers. Amy Marino, HubSpot’s global head of brand marketing, said, “Antoine Gregory’s Black Fashion Fair is a great example of a business that puts its mission at its core—and they’ve scaled while maintaining purpose. We’re inspired by Antoine’s accomplishments and excited to partner once 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 by Antoine Manning (founder of Homage Year) and Nicole Zizi (founder of Nicole Zizi Studio), two designers who are expanding through their commitment to their brand, their communities, and their customers. The products include Antoine Manning’s signature Mini Ova bag in HubSpot’s solaris orange, Nicole Zizi’s iconic organic cotton logo hoodie with “grow better” detailing, and a custom one-of-one 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 have reflected our shared
commitment to uplift new creative talent to fans on the cutting edge of art and fashion. In our
third collaboration, we’re proud to highlight diverse creators who face obstacles in business
development and retail exposure, and to shine a spotlight on Antoine Gregory’s drive and
commitment to advocating for change.”
NTWRK and HubSpot’s third drop will take place on Sept. 9 during INBOUND, an annual
event powered by HubSpot that unites thought leaders from over 161 countries across
marketing, sales, customer success, and revenue operations. The drop launches live on the NTWRK app on Sept. 9 at 1 p.m. ET. The event immediately follows the 12:15 p.m. INBOUND Spotlight Stage talk with NTWRK CMO Jason Brown and Antoine Gregory. This collaboration is the latest drop in HubSpot’s and NTWRK’s innovative brand partnership, which includes two prior releases with King Saladeen and Cristina Martinez.
