The MakeFashion initiative is a collaboration of great minds who want to demonstrate that the convergence of Technology and Art can result in a form, fashion and community brand new to Calgary. Creativity and innovation are the guiding principles to unit fashion, jewelry and accessories designers with software and hardware engineers. Along with technology enthusiasts, creatives and those that just simply like to engage in cultural experiments – all are invited to participate in the MakeFashion event series.
The Make Fashion Gala pairs fashion local designers with tech-savvy "makers" to create innovative artistic pieces that glow, flash, and respond to touch and sound.
100% of the money will go towards buying raw materials and electronics for the designers to make their amazing creations.
