Welcome to the first one-day expo hosted by the Fashion Design programme at Te Herenga Waka–Victoria University of Wellington.
This year's theme is Textile Futures: Fashion design and technology.
This annually held event aims to bring together researchers, educators, students and innovators engaged in sustainability, science, design and technology. Through speakers, workshops, demos and an interactive exhibition, this event explores technologies that alter the way we make, use, understand and feel about fashion and textiles.
We welcome high school students and teachers, university students and staff, industry professionals and the general public to participate in person or via online.
See schedule below for details and programme (more to come).
The event is hosted by The School of Design Innovation at Te Herenga Waka–Victoria University of Wellington, which is New Zealand’s cutting-edge option for shaping a career in design https://www.wgtn.ac.nz/design-innovation.
