Hacking Couture intervened by GAIA arts collective
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.
