What happens when we use a brand's code to distribute our own message?

Activist group GAIA will be collaborating with Hacking Couture in this workshop.

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.

July 14, 7-9PM

Led by Giana Gonzalez, Hacking Couture

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.

Once upon a time being alone meant you were unable to play a decent game of rock-paper-scissors, but now you can finally amuse yourself with just your own hand.
