Calling all future design innovators!

Are you a textile or fashion design student or recent graduate who is interested in the exciting ideas being explored around sustainability and innovation within textiles and fashion?

TED PhD student Jen Ballie is organising the first in a series of workshops exploring co-design for textile and fashion design and she needs some participants.

If you were born between 1977 and 1997 (Generation Y!), are familiar with the latest digital tools such as Twitter, blogging and Facebook and you are available from February 7th - 18th in central London, then Jen would like to hear from you.

The selected participants will be invited to a design meeting where the project will be pitched and they will play an active role in defining the overall brief. You will leave with a goodie bag of design tools, tips and tricks to get started on your design research and development. The following week we will meet again and get to work collectively designing a collection of fashion fabrics and accessories.

This is an exciting opportunity for you to participate in a live research project and play an active role in defining new design approaches, and an excellent CV opportunity!
