Forward to Basics - Openwear Collaborative Collection Workshop

You need to allow cookies on our site, to be able to see this video / embeded content.

I have been working on this project with my studio for almost a year now. It is a completely new field for me- fashion. But what we are trying to do here is to change the very logic of the fashion business. Open source, participation, community education and peer to peer economic models are probably the main key words. Here is a nice video about the thoughts of our workshop participants, who have created the first Openwear open source collection.

In spring 2010 EDUfashion project invited 8 craftsmen and designers to take part ro the creation of the first Openwear Collaborative Collection. This video contains some impressions and conversations going on during those days.

The codes of the collection will be released under Creative Commons License and the member of Openwear Community will be able to download them, produce and sell the garments under Openwear collective brand.

ABOUT MEMEBLOG

Hey, welcome to the official Memefest blog!

Since 2003 we have been using a blog platform as tactical media to reflect, critique, comment and inform around the broad field of communication. Now in 2010 with our newly conceived on-line platform we hope that through time this space will evolve in a collaborative blog media with a wider group of contributors to the global discourse around social responsibility of media and communication. Stuff that you can find here is either original or carefully and originally edited from other sources.  There is a good chance that you will find things that will be of good use for you too if you follow us more regularly.

Of course we look at Memeblog as a dialogic platform. Your comments are encouraged and mostly welcome.

If you feel like collaborating in this: drop us a line: memefest at memefest dot org.
