Imagine a world where your clothes regulate your body temperature, monitor your vital signs, and your necklace begins to glow when the sun goes down.
Today, this is achievable. Modern fashion designers are no stranger to the potential of merging clothing with electronics. Make Fashion is an initiative that introduces talented local designers to cutting edge new technologies, subject matter experts and wearable technology.
Make Fashion: Wearable Technology
Having launched in June 2012, Make Fashion hosted its first wearable technology fashion show and gala on January 25 2013. It introduced Calgary designers to the exciting world of wearables through a series of informative, hands-on, designer-lead workshops. Make Fashion’s first year culminated in an outstanding sold-out fashion show and gala that showcased the garments of 7 designers.
