Let's upgrade the garment and textile industry to the 21st century at MeshCon 2014 Fashion and Tec Week in Berlin. The event will take place from 10-15 October at the TU Berlin and the home of the Wikipedia community in Berlin, the Wikimedia e.V.
Today our clothes are produced in unethical ways harming people and the environment. Our community is developing human technologies, and fair and environment friendly concepts for the production of garments and textiles. How can we make it work now with the industry and consumers together? How to reap the benefits of participatory production in the textile industry?
We bring together industry experts, fashion designers, pattern creators, knitters, textile manipulators, Open Source Fashiontec developers and DIY hardware makers. MeshCon Berlin The event offers a place to exchange new ideas in personalized fashion and technologies in the garment production.
Participants from across the world are joining the five day event at locations around Berlin city. The first and second day we will start with a conference at the University of Technology TU Berlin. In the following days you can learn how to create your own fashion and wearables at workshops at the Wikimedia Deutschland e.V. office. Please join us!
