DDMP x WeMakeThe.City - Fashion: Distributed Design

April 2nd 2019

Thursday 25 April 2019: DDMP x WeMakeThe.City - Fashion: Distributed Design, Pakhuis de Zwijger, Amsterdam

How can we create a circular fashion industry through distributed design? Inspiring ideas by makers and experts.

Distributed Design is a new field emerging from the intersection of two global trends: the Maker Movement and the digitisation of the design discipline. This convergence has lead to the rise of a new market, in which creative individuals have access to digital tools that allow them to design, produce and fabricate products themselves and easily connect to a global network of tools and collaborators to undertake aspects of this process with them: the Distributed Design Market Platform (DDMP). The fashion industry is one of the front runners, working reproducible and distributable to minimise the footprint, and implementing innovative technological tools. This evening fashion designers and experts share their view on the distributed future of fashion.
