What is sustainable fashion? Why are design codes important? How do we decode them? Curator Sarah Scaturro and interaction designer Giana González will use these questions as a starting point to work with participants to explore how the code for the sustainable fashion movement can be decoded and reassembled.
Hacking Couture is a platform for launching new fashion creations through an open source approach of reverse engineering fashion brands and making the code available online. Hands-on workshops encourage participants to create using the codes regardless of their level of fashion knowledge, and to engage in the larger fashion conversation. By understanding the coding of established fashion, this project provides a platform to empower participants to step up and create.
