Hack'n'Talk - Refashion.co

This score is not a joke or a typo. This is for real.

We talk about waiting for the right time to start our businesses. Now you REALLY don’t have an excuse. Hack’n’Talk 2014 is ready to merge fashion and technology in Toronto, Canada, June 28-29th…for only $15. What a crazy fantastic opportunity to transform what you know today as reality.

The Fashion Zone, Canada’s “newest incubator and accelerator for fashion-inspired entrepreneurs,” and Hackernest, Canada’s largest tech meet-up, are hosting the two-day Fashion Tech Conference and ‘Hack’n’Talk at Ryerson’s Digital Media Zone.

Both days run from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. filled with workshops, panels, prototyping, hands on mentorship, networking, food and an after party. Workshops include topics ranging from coding, product design and 3D printing and speakers hitting on innovation in fashion and wearable technology.

“What excites me about doing a collaborative fashion and tech hackathon like this is that anything can happen,” said FZ’s Olga Okhrimenko. “It’s exciting to imagine the potential for finalized products and how they could be applied to our industries and everyday life.”

A release said “industry experts” will be on-hand to lead workshops and demonstrations on creativity, wearable technology, 3D printing, coding and product design. Teams will be given 24 hours to create and work on an idea or product from start to finish from the skills they pick up over the weekend and throughout their working sessions. Three teams will receive nominations and get a valuable feedback.

Your $15 tickets can be purchased here. Hats off to their beautiful event page.
