Last week we at MakeFashion were invited to attend the ANT+ Wireless Symposium in Banff. There we hosted a mini fashion show with two pieces from our previous shows, two brand new fashion tech pieces, as well as an interactive installation using ANT+ technology.
The MakeFashion recently travelled to Nashville to produce a runway show for Brother’s “Back to Business” conference. At the forefront of technology and design, we showcased our work to demonstrate what can happen when sewing and technology come together.
MakeFashion will be showcasing at the Canadian International Fashion Film Festival on July 22nd and 23rd.

“Certainly, our designers range from high fashion to performance and costume pieces, and we like to encourage diversity, but we will definitely be bringing more of the fashion pieces to Paris!”

I have been doing my craft for a long time and I thought that you had to create a name for yourself, defining your work by your individuality. Then I was introduced to this group called ‘Makefashion’ and all my gains that I made by myself in my many years of work were surpassed in just one 6 month period. I now realize where I may have gone wrong; in not realizing the power of a makers’ community.
