MakeFashion Edu is a platform for young designers, and a launching point for careers in design. Designers take what they need from technology to share their stories, and don’t need to be engineers to do so. Make Fashion Tech part of your plan!
Here you can find options for starting your own workshops, getting access to MakeFashion Edu community, insider content, and applying to have your own MakeFashion Edu Runway!
Contact us if you’d like to apply!
