Hacking the runway: high tech meets high fashion.

MakeFashion explores the potential of merging fashion with cutting-edge electronics. MakeFashion is an initiative that introduces designers, engineers, and makers to cutting edge new technologies: fusing high-tech and high-fashion on the runway.

MakeFashion: Wearable Technology

Launched in June 2012 by a trio of Calgarians, MakeFashion has produced over 100 wearable tech garments and showcased at over 60 international events. We introduce high-end fashion designers and artists to the exciting world of wearables through a series of informative, hands-on, designer-lead workshops. Our annual gala in Calgary, Canada debuts new collections of innovative fashion technology combined with theatre and performance. MakeFashion has showcased around the world including New York, Rome, and Shenzhen.
