Here’s an interesting event happening this weekend in NYC:
On September 12 and 13, 2009, during New York Fashion Week, the mainstream fashion community, the independent fashion community, and fashion’s next wave of wearable technologists will convene at FashionCampNY to address the future of fashion in the 21st Century.
To be held at NYU’s Interactive Telecommunications Program Center (721 Broadway), FashionCampNY is the first large event to bring together disparate parts of the fashion community to discuss and explore the intersection of fashion and technology. For two days, roughly 300 fashion professionals, designers, innovators and fashion-lovers will teach and converse about the future of fashion, exploring emerging questions through workshops, presentations, and collaboration. It is an “unconference” attended and run by the participants.
I’ll be helping run a soft circuits workshop, so come on out!
