MakeFashion gala is almost here!

The annual MakeFashion runway gala exhibits technology infused into fashion that creates wearable pieces of art.

The annual MakeFashion runway gala exhibits technology infused into fashion that creates wearable pieces of art. And this year, the fourth annual show will once again catwalk through TELUS Spark’s atrium on Saturday, April 2.

Three Calgarians founded MakeFashion in 2012, merging fashion, engineering and cutting edge electronics to create high-fashion and high-tech pieces.

2015 was my first experience, and I had a blast taking photos and taking the whole interactive environment.

It was different from any other runway event I had ever seen. The dark atmosphere and lit up pieces of wearable technology were very majestic and fun to watch. Check out the images I took last year. I would recommend the event to anyone who enjoys fashion or technology.

And it’s not just for show. Take for example, Alleles Design Studio who design and create prosthetic limbs — their work is both breath-taking and meaningful.
