Lumen Couture Showcased at Seattle Mini Maker Faire
We hosted a fashiontech and exhibition at Seattle’s Mini Maker Faire at the MoPop.
On August 18 2018, we showcased our future-fashion clothing at the Seattle Mini MakerFaire.
Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. From engineers to artists to scientists to crafters, Maker Faire is a venue for these “makers” to show hobbies, experiments, projects.
Our exhibition showcased work from the Lumen Couture ready-to-wear line, and runway garments from MakeFashion. We hosted a Q&A with the audience discussing our process of prototyping and the tools and techniques used in our garments.
Thanks to the Seattle Mini Maker Faire for hosting us, and to the audience for your great questions!
