This year FabTextiles participated in the FAB14, the annual gathering of Fab Labs globally. The event took place in different locations across France from the 11th to the 22th of July. First, FabTextiles exhibited the 5th Digital Fashion & Wearables in Paris at Villette Makerz. This exhibition was an open invitation to all curious minds that aspire to redesign our society with shared ethical and visionary values. It is a group of creators that design concepts, techniques and materials and offer strategies relevant to merging technology with fashion and sustainability. They envision a future of synergies between disciplines, combining textiles, biology, materials, science, digital fabrication and embedded electronics.
Featured works included projects from Fabricademy labs (Fab Lab Barcelona, Textile Lab Amsterdam, Fab Lab Kamp-Lintfort), final projects of Fabricademy graduated students (Brigitte Kock, Clara Davis, Fanny Trivero, Laura Civetti, Pauline Bianchi, Sofia Guridi Sotomayor, Sophie Akihbi and Wei Chung), and invited artists (Claire Eliot, Elisabeth Jayot and Jeanne Vicerial,) all exhibited on 3d printed mannequins by WASP.
