CAKE 13: Future Fashion

Thursday 9th November

The Northern Design Centre, Gateshead



Creative Fuse North East’s 13th CAKE event will examine how fashion is adapting to the digital age, discuss ethical and environmentally conscious approaches to design, and explore the connection between wearable tech and wellbeing.

We will also look at the North East's fashion heritage and the ways that this is being preserved and shared with wider audiences. In a CAKE exclusive, this event will also feature an interactions gallery, showcasing the work of local fashion designers, makers and students.
