Welcome to the Future Fashion Design Center

What is this whole Future Fashion Design thing?

We present a quick summary here.  (All the intro here.)  Click on the heading links of each for more information. 

What is a Future Fashion Contest?

It's a chance for people to put their visions of future clothing fashions onto paper. It's a chance for you to participate in this fun, creative process.

What is a Future Fashion Folio?   

It's the collection of winning designs from a future fashion contest... but it is also a wonderful look at many alternative visions of the future.   Step away from the present, image tomorrow...

What is the Future Fashion Show?

Many times the process doesn't stop with the future folio's publication.  The next step is the Future Fashion Show where some of the designs are brought to life in fabric.

(A step by step introduction of the whole process  <here>.)
