Spotlight: Fashion Publicist Owen Geronimo

Inside Flipboard / October 20, 2014

My name is Owen Geronimo and my medium is art, fashion and technology.

My love of creativity and anti-establishment philosophy has led me into interesting projects in the worlds of art, fashion and business. I founded a nonprofit in San Francisco for fashion, technology and design called San Francisco Fashion And Merchants Alliance. Now, I work with aspiring startups, entrepreneurs, designers and students on the future of fashion, retail and wearable technology.

I use Flipboard for fashion and retail news, technology trends, and as one of my favorite media channels. I work with new media formats and platforms, and Flipboard is comfortable and convenient to use.

The first article I flipped wasFrom High Fashion to Video Games: Giles Deacon for Luigi’s Mansion II” via HYPEBEAST for my magazine “News Fash.”

I started using Flipboard to catalogue and publish industry news. I love Giles Deacon and Hypebeast! I’m also a big manga fan and I’ve been fascinated by Giles Deacon’s Pac-Man headdresses.

The best article I read all week isEdward Snowden’s Privacy Tips: ‘Get Rid of Dropbox,’ Avoid Facebook and Google” from TechCrunch.

Some of my favorite influences are Nick Knight and Bruce Weber for photography, Tom Ford for menswear, Alexander McQueen for womenswear, Andy Warhol for art and Carine Roitfeld for media.
