This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The Maker Movement has been proclaimed as the New Industrial Revolution. This culture of DIY artisans with a technological twist has become an economic force. Now, in a shift from mass-produced merchandise, to crafted products with personal stories, Jill Sherman explains how we scale the makers of today into independent businesses of tomorrow.

Jill Sherman has spent over 12 years working in luxury fashion. Most recently, she was running the Miu Miu Visual Department at Prada USA and Asia Pacific, accountable for the strategic development of the brand’s image and expansion within all boutique and wholesale accounts throughout the United States and Asia. Prior to Prada, Sherman worked at Harvey Nichols managing the buying team, at Vogue magazine as a fashion assistant in the accessories department, and at Italian Vogue as a stylist assistant on photo shoots. She has lived in Asia for five years and holds a B.A. from Tufts University and an M.B.A. from MIT Sloan. Sherman was honored by Crain’s as a Woman to Watch in NY Tech 2014.

About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
