Activating Disruptive Fashion Modes and Practices

Make{able}

Make{able} is a project and an open collaboration to encourage everyone to become active makers of their own wardrobe. We use design as a tool to empower and en{able} people with knowledge, skills and new ideas to gain a greater freedom and independence in style and choice.

With Make{able} we want to bring clothing and accessories design closer to the user. The project was initiated by Anja-Lisa but is now run by a great team which combines a variety of designers and other professionals: Harri, Laura, DanielVendulaTjasa and Nina as well as other great collaborating designers. In our workshops we provide our participants with an easy and fun platform to share, make and experience clothes making. Through different workshop concepts: Half-way products* and repair, redesign & upcycling of the existing we hope to offer something interesting for everyone.

*Half-way products offer you to co-design a garment with us. This enables also inexperienced sewers, to create something unique in a shorter time.  A half-way garment, is designed in a way that it leaves you a space to finish it according to your creative ideas and preferences.
