Nolcha Fashion Week: New York announces Lightspeed POS, the commerce platform for serious retailers, as an official sponsor for this upcoming Fall/Winter 2015 season, which will run February 11th – 15th at Pier 59 Studios.


Continuing in its seventh consecutive year, and held during New York Fashion Week, Nolcha is one of the city’s leading platforms for global independent fashion designers. This season Katty Xiomara returns with a runway showcase of her RE-evolution collection. Additional shows include the “Ones to Watch” collective featuring emerging brands Charles & Ron, Yvette Hass, Haute Athletics, and Mitsouly, and an evening show which features established international brands such as Prieston, Ann Himsel and Danny Nguyen Couture.


“We look forward to partnering with Lightspeed to connect its trusted network of retailers to our pioneering independent fashion designers seeking to expand their stocklists and grow their businesses,” said Arthur Mandel, Co-Founder of Nolcha Fashion Week. “Additionally we are excited to align with such a company that is passionate about providing the most innovative software products for retailers around the world; as we know that our network will be keen to learn about and work with Lightspeed.”


Lightspeed’s inventory management and POS tools makes managing a retail business easy, letting owners and mangers spend their time doing what they do best – merchandising the store and helping customers find products they love. With Lightspeed, retailers get a real-time view of stock levels and sales trends across their stores, both online and off, so they can always have the hottest inventory on-hand. Since Lightspeed can be accessed through an iPad, merchants can provide personalized recommendations based on stored preferences, check inventory, and check people out, any place in the store.


“Our mission at Lightspeed is to help Main Street flourish by providing cutting edge technologies that make it easy for retailers to successfully grow their businesses and provide great customer experiences,” said Dax Dasilva, CEO and founder of Lightspeed. “We are proud to be partnering with such a wonderful event to further support the world of independent retailers and the incredible artisans and designers they work with.”
