Machine intelligence, cloud, additive manufacturing, big data… Digital Made is a modular programme that aims to accelerate digital transformation in the fashion sector with the contribution of young men and women.
The Fondazione Mondo Digitale has been working with art, design and technology for a number of years, now. In 2014, we organised the first edition of the Media Art Festival and introduced clothing developed in the Fab Lab (a collaboration with CNA and tailors) to the Maker Faire [see Maker Fashion: Alice at the Phyrtual Innovation Gym]. Over the course of the years, we have added new environments to the Phyrtual Innovation Gym: IoT Lab, Media Art Lab etc. Today, we are ready to provide a contribution to the Fashion Education sector, to mould beauty and new technology, because beauty is not a luxury. It is a common good, that must be ethical, sustainable and accessible to everyone.
The project will be kicked off with a special event. In fact, as part of the Altaroma event that will be held on January 24-27, 2019 at the Prati Bus District, the Fondazione Mondo Digitale is promoting “Fashion Digital Made” to launch digital transformation in the fashion sector and develop new professional profiles. The event will include the Fashion Hub 4.0 with a live show and the production of custom-tailored accessories with digital manufacturing devices and the Fashion Digital Night, an original catwalk of wearable technology projects from 14 countries around the world.
