Make Fashion x Maker Faire Xi’an
In July 2017, I spent two weeks working with a group of Chinese designers, and a team from MakeFashion to develop and prototype fashion tech garments for the runway at MakerFaire Xi'an. We worked with local communities to develop knowledge of electronics using MakeFashion's StitchKit system. I mentored young designers in their prototyping, and assisted in soldering and programming the electronic components of many outfits. We produced a fashion show featuring over 40 garments, the majority of which were created during our workshop. We also produced a pop up fashion show that took place in a public square to raise awareness of the maker faire.
