Make Fashion Gala

leave a comment




“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.

The Make Fashion Gala is the highlight of the festival, featuring innovative work by local designers.” – Make Fashion

Organic Jewelry

leave a comment

On September 2009, Calgary hosted the Worldskills competition. Hundreds of the best young professionals from trades, service and technical programs around the world gather to showcase their talents and abilities. One of the trades was Organic Jewelry. This necklace was made of different dry leaves, seeds and hemps. The temporary nature of the craft is what made it special. It’s art with an expiry date.
