Make Fashion

Make Fashion

Imagine a world where your clothes regulate your body temperature, monitor your vital signs, and your necklace begins to glow when the sun goes down.

Today, this is achievable. Modern fashion designers are no stranger to the potential of merging clothing with electronics.

Make Fashion is an initiative that introduces talented local designers to cutting edge new technologies, subject matter experts, and wearable technology. We are collaboration of great minds who want to explore and demonstrate the convergence fashion and technology.

From awe-inspiring responsive runway dresses to scientific wearables with practical applications, Make Fashion designers are inspired by fashion with functionality.

Our runway gala in Calgary, Alberta is our largest annual event, where we pair fashion designers and artists with engineers and tech enthusiasts. The combination of skills and ideas creates stunning results and groundbreaking fusions of light, fashion and performance. See for yourself with the summary of our sold-out 2013 gala here.

In addition to our runway series, Make Fashion produces series of thought leadership symposiums, public-access workshops, and molecular cocktail events.
