04 APRIL — 03 JUNE 2016
Open Call for Proposals –  Future Fashion Workshop

Enhancing Life, a regional project by the Goethe-Institut explores the past, present and future of textiles in Southeast Asia, Australia and New Zealand  as traditional cultural craft, a material for art and part of the digital technology revolution.

Smart textiles and wearable technologies are a hot topic now as we find ourselves in  a place where fashion and technology meet, generating a myriad of new concepts, designs and products. From belts, glasses and watches to jackets, shoes and dresses, everything that can be worn is getting the high-tech treatment.

Future Fashion Workshop seeks to promote young designers and encourage
dialogue among professionals in a diverse range of areas such as fashion, material  science, digital technology and social product design. 18 participants will have the  opportunity to attend an intensive five-day workshop with Berlin-based
FashionTech house, ELEKTROCOUTURE. The group is known for bringing
technology into style, as opposed to putting style on top of gadgets, and for

pioneering the future of self-expression and style.

Each participant will also   receive  € 200 towards producing their prototype,
which will be presented at a fashion show in Siam Center during Bangkok Fashion week in November.
