DAM New York 2020

The Art and Practice of Managing Digital Media


Anne V. Adami

Co-founder, Managing Editor and President


Anne V. Adami and her husband, Nicolas Charney, are co-owners/founders of the world’s most valuable/unique fashion archives. The Videofashion Library is a video time capsule documenting the art, culture and business of fashion news since 1976 until present.  Anne has been on location, interviewing, producing and leading  Videofashion production/programming teams to gather 18,000 hours of wholly-owned footage that tell the many stories that make the ongoing history of fashion matter.  This five-decade library cost $43 million to build, and is now being “unlocked” now rendering the massive metadata of 10,000 runway shows, 35,000 exclusive interviews, thousands of crucial models/designers/celebrity faces – all searchable, deliverable and monetizable on the Library Search Platform for licensing content to TV, apps, news, documentarians, co-investors, and more. After graduate studies in N.Y. and Rome, Anne modeled for six years with the Wilhelmina Agency – while also on location for Videofashion.

Before attending a HS DAM event, I never knew the true impact or importance of DAM. For the first time it felt like I wasn't alone, but part of something so much greater. I left inspired and motivated to take what I had learned and apply it our DAM system. I look forward to the event every year!

The Henry Stewart DAM NY conference did not disappoint. The breadth of topics and experiences covered were amazing.  I could have used three of me to cover all the sessions I was interested in attending!
