Anina in 2015

Anina, also known by the pseudonym Anina.net,[1] is an American-born international fashion model, blogger,[2] and fashion technology and wearables event producer.

She has a following in China.[3][4] China Central Television awarded her "China's top foreign model" in 2009.[5] She also has her own line of Anime-inspired clothes, "aninaMINEme".[6]

She is CEO and founder of 360Fashion Network, a network of fashion professionals using the web 2.0 and mobile technologies.[7][8][9]

Anina.net produces large fashion technology events in Asia[10] such as the 360Fashion&Tech Expo (in its 4th year)[11] together with the China National Garment Association CHIC show, which has over 125,000 people in attendance[12][13] and the first high tech runway fashion show in China at the Mobile World Congress, Shanghai.[14][15] She produced the IBM 360Fashion & Tech Innovation Awards in the United States in November 2015,[16] though her first exhibition was in 2004, called "a new kind of supermodel" at Molière's house in Paris under the art posthume movement[17] Anina was the first model blogger, starting in 2004.[18] In 2005 her modeling agency gave her an ultimatum to stop blogging. She refused to quit, and so was forced to join another agency[19][20]

Anina.net brings designers and technologists together to create one-of-a-kind designs for exhibition such as the Robotic Dress, laser dresses, LED bags and gloves, solar powered bags, 3D printed prosthetics, redesign of robots and mobile apps.[21]
