New York. Paris. London. Brisbane?
Introducing Australia’s first ever Fashion Startup Weekend, brought to you by QUT Creative Enterprise Australia Fashion360. In just 54 hours, teams are formed to sketch designs, craft business models, and pitch world-first ideas to a panel of judges and industry mentors.
Technology and social environmental impacts are quickly changing the way we produce and consume fashion. From recyclable fabrics, to 3D printed jewellery, posture correcting shirts and social media marketplaces, fashion is no longer confined to a simple needle and thread. As the needs of customers continue to evolve, so must brands and retailers if they intend to survive.
If you have ever thought about starting your own clothing label, getting involved in the fashion industry, building a fashion marketplace or solving real world problems affecting customers and retailers then Fashion Startup Weekend is for you. We welcome ideas spanning innovative designs, unexplored niche market needs, supply chains, smart-textiles, digital fabrication, recyclables, 3D printing, retail technology, and sustainability.
This event is for the outside thinkers, trendsetters, and those who revel in disruption. If this sounds like you, please join us for an unforgettable weekend of ideation, creativity, technology, and development.
Register quickly as tickets are selling fast. As always, first in, best dressed.
