Workshop 18 – 21 o’clock, 05 March 2019, Berlin

From the wearable project idea to the small series

Are you interested in Wearables and Fashion Tech? Do you have experience in technology and electronics? Then don’t miss the chance to join a workshop held by our partners MYOW in Berlin to shape the future of tomorrow’s wearable creations!


The exciting new project MYOW (Make Your Own Wearables) started in autumn 2018 and his planned until autumn 2021. The production of eTextiles and other wearables requires many different expertise and production steps. Due to this challenge, a lot of fantastic ideas are sometimes never created. We want to change that. The goal of MYOW is a digital enriched service space that joins designer, maker, service provider and manufacturers to realize wearables.
