Highlights of the MakeFashion 2016 Gala

The MakeFashion Wearable Tech Gala and Runway Show last Satuday was … A-MA-ZING!

The annual MakeFashion gala in Calgary is unlike any other fashion or technology show; the pieces created are engineered with high tech electronics that transform the garmet into a stunning, one-of-a-kind piece.

There were both local and international designers who participated this year. One of my favorites was the “snow queen” and “Japanese Lantern” dresses that were created by team “Kiki Forever” part of the Zyris Organization.

The bright LED lighting and colors in the creations by “Kiki Forever” illuminated the silhouette of the dresses, allowing them to take over the catwalk.

Another highlight for me was the prosthetic fashion creations by Alleles Design Studio. I was anticipating their pieces since last year, and they did not disappoint! There were two prosthetic covers designed by them that included LED technology.
