Meet our 2016 MakeFashion Curators
As we prepare for our fourth year of MakeFashion, we’re introducing a panel of acclaimed experts to curate our 2016 projects. We’re excited to be working with an esteemed panel of internationally recognized artists, makers, thinkers, and entrepreneurs.
This year we received over 20 project proposals. Our curator panel will be judging entries based on design, originality, and technical innovation. Selected projects will be funded by MakeFashion for our March 2016 runway show and traveling events. We are looking forward to announcing our projects to you in mid-September!
