Tell Your Story Through Fashion Tech
What Will You Learn?
Everyone has a story to tell and everyone wears clothing that tells part of that story. Since people first started wearing clothes, there has been meaning attached to what was put on. From colors designated only for nobility to stripes for prisoners to team uniforms, fashion has been a way to bring people together and to set them apart, to make a statement or as a means of self-expression.
About This Adventure
Today, fashion designers are not limited to fabrics in their designs. Technology has become part of our story and is much more accessible. Young designers can use tech such as lights, sensors, and microcontrollers to tell their stories.
In this course, you will experience and experiment as we go through the MakeFashion Edu process to support campers as they:
learn – about the elements of fashion and circuits
design – a story and the wearable
construct – a fashion tech piece using recyclable materials and lights
exhibit – be seen! Our favorite medium is the runway.
You will be able to support your designers as they find their voices and tell their own stories through fashion pieces they create and share.
Watch the video to see highlights from a MakeFashion Edu Runway Event. What stories are being told by these young designers?
