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. MakeFashion is an initiative that introduces designers 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 Albertans, MakeFashion hosted its first wearable technology fashion show has produced over 30 wearable tech garments and showcased at over 20 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. MakeFashion has since hosted three runway galas and has showcased the work of international designers around the world including New York, Rome, and Shenzhen.
