Fashion Tech for Girls is an initiative to stoke a girl's interest in math, science and engineering through learning the techniques of fashion design and creating wearable technology.
The truth is... fashion is in a really exciting place, from clothes that can be programmed and 3d design, to the geometry of design and the chemistry of dying fabrics it is a wondrous world of exploring and creating.
We teach girls the actual techniques that they need to be fashion designers and then inspire them to use their creativity to solve real world dilemmas with fashion technology.
