Open source branding lecture at Parsons

Last month I was in New York invited by Otto von Busch at The School of Design Strategies for a lecture and a workshop about the concept of open source  in fashion and how I experienced it through the projects I co-funded starting from 2005 ( Serpica Naro and Openwear). The SDS is “an experimental educational environment configured to advance innovative approaches to design and business education in the evolving context of cities, services, and ecosystems”. Below you can find the slides of the lecture and here some pictures of the workshop! It was a great experience working together with Otto but also Pascale Gatzen and finally meeting with Giana, from Hacking Couture.
