Submissions and sketches for the 2017 MakeFashion Gala have been collected and we are preparing to release our teams and the designs within the next few weeks. But before we getting ready for the new show, we want to take a moment to look back at some of the incredible pieces at last year’s gala. Here are a few of those amazing pieces.
We live in a world where technology completely engulfs us, we’re never too far from our smartphones, laptops, or tablets. Critics have claimed that this is a bad thing, that we’re too attached to our devices, but tech enthusiasts and innovators are trying to entwine technology more seamlessly (get it??) into our lives. Wearable technology is advancing daily and it’s getting faster, smarter, smaller, and less noticeable.
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.
The Canadian International Fashion Film Festival (CANIFFF) is a platform and event that engages, exciting directors, artists, new and established talent, advertisers, designers, producers, fashion industry leaders and audience. The Canadian International Fashion Film Festival will showcase and support the diverse medium and visionary talent through impactful, cutting edge storytelling.
