New York. Paris. London. Brisbane?
Introducing Australia’s first Startup Weekend Fashion, brought to you by QUT Creative Enterprise Australia’s Fashion360. In just 54 hours, teams are formed to sketch designs, craft business models, and pitch business ideas to a panel of judges and expert 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 digital marketplaces. Fashion is no longer a simple needle and thread but extends into our lives in ways we have only just begun to explore.
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 Startup Weekend Fashion is for you.
We welcome ideas spanning the circular economy, marketplaces, e-commerce, design, niche markets, supply chains, smart-textiles, digital fabrication, 3D printing, retail technology, and sustainability.
What is Startup Weekend?
Startup Weekend is a 54 hour weekend event, that allows for fashion lovers, designers, developers, marketers, outside thinkers, trendsetters, and those who revel in disruption to pitch business ideas, form teams, and develop a working prototype / demo to present by Sunday evening.
If this sounds of interest to you, please join us for an unforgettable weekend of ideation, creativity, technology and development.
