Ashley Barby grew up in Alberta with a passion for fashion and her early sights set on
Toronto (or even New York). With degree in hand, and the experience of a plum job with Holt
Renfrew, she followed her heart and headed East. Her journey has taken her into the

new entrepreneurs, is at the heart of Ashleys commitment to make the world a better place
and is also the driver behind her launch of FashionTech Toronto, a forum to connect
innovators and leaders in the fashion and tech fields.
