Playable Fashion


Playable Fashion is a free teen program, in partnership with Global Kids.  The program explores the intersections between Fashion, Technology and Gaming.  Youth learn the concepts and techniques behind them in order to create their own digital games and wearable technology projects.

  • Game Design: The digital tools, concepts and methodologies needed to design a good video game.
  • Fashion: How to design, fabricate/sew your own wearable game controller, that corresponds with your digital game.
  • Technology: How to build your own circuits and soft switches/sensors.
