As Fashion Month winds to a close and we bid adieu to awards season, the time has come to embrace yet another several month-long string of entertainment and celebrity-studded events: festival season. Ahead of Coachella’s flower crowns, South by Southwest hit Austin, Texas this weekend for its annual week of music, film and interactive (read: technology) shows, panels and performances.
In honor of SXSW’s interactive element, we teamed up with Rachel Sklar and Glynnis MacNicol, founders of TheLi.st, a digital newsletter and networking site dedicated to giving visibility to, in their words, "awesome women," to highlight those ladies in tech who are as stylish as they are brainy and accomplished.
Ranging from a comedy website producer to Facebook’s chief operating officer (looking at you, Sheryl Sandberg), click through above to meet 31 of the most stylish women in technology.*
Update; March 12, 4:45PM: The line above has been updated to clarify that this list is not ranked. The list has been amended to remove Jenna Wortham, per her request, and to add three women who were on our initial draft: Nicole Sanchez, Pavia Rosati, and Jeralyn Gerba. I’d also like to make it clear that my team at Lucky pitched and wrote this story. We reached out to Sklar and MacNicol, both of whom work closely with and are passionate about women in the tech space, to help us round out the feature by pointing us in the direction of those who were new to the scene, up-and-coming, or maybe just women we would not have known about on our own. - Verena von Pfetten, executive digital editor.
