I have been working on this project with my studio for almost a year now. It is a completely new field for me- fashion. But what we are trying to do here is to change the very logic of the fashion business. Open source, participation, community education and peer to peer economic models are probably the main key words. Here is a nice video about the thoughts of our workshop participants, who have created the first Openwear open source collection.

In spring 2010 EDUfashion project invited 8 craftsmen and designers to take part ro the creation of the first Openwear Collaborative Collection. This video contains some impressions and conversations going on during those days.

The codes of the collection will be released under Creative Commons License and the member of Openwear Community will be able to download them, produce and sell the garments under Openwear collective brand.
