BurdaStyle is participating at Parsons’ Fashion Camp and needs your help – please vote for us!

On February 20-21 in NYC, FashionCamp will bring together the worlds of fashion and technology for a two day, volunteer-run conference at Parsons, the New School for Design. It will bridge the gap between these two communities; illustrating the many ways they affect each other through new techniques, materials, business models, and possibilities. This is the second year that FashionCamp will be bringing together mainstream, indie and vintage fashion worlds along with the wearable technology fashion community for a weekend of learning and exploring. Over the course of these two days attendees participate in open workshops. The event doesn’t cost any money, but there is a price: most of the attendees must give a demo, present a talk, or assist. FashionCampNY is made possible through the generous support of community and businesses. Sponsorship and presentation opportunities are available.

Vote for and come see Nora’s talk on “Collaborative and Crowdsourcing Design" here!

Doors open at 9am, attendance is free but participation and assistance is strongly encouraged. Rsvp to attend this awesome event!
