Santa Monica, CA
Friday, March 27th / Cross Campus Santa Monica
Doors at 7pm / Talks at 8:30pm
*** PLUS Simulcast Lounge in Pasadena ***
The field of fashion and technology is exploding, but even still much of it has taken the form of simple heartbeat bracelets and activity trackers. But this is only the beginning... Mindshare and Cross Campus are proud to host four female role-models each of whom are redefining how fashion blends with technology to react to our bodies and surroundings.
How will FashionTech impact social interaction and self expression? What does it mean when form and function are so deeply intertwined? What does our future look like as we continue to embed technology into what we wear?
Special guests include:
Anouk Wipprecht (NL, fashiontech designer)
Tiffany Trenda (L.A, new media performance artist)
Syuzi Pakhchyan (L.A, fashioningtech.com)
Behnaz Farahi (L.A, interaction designer).
Join us as our speakers take you to another world, in where the union of fashion and technology is being embraced much further than you would ever think of...
WHEN 7pm-11pm, Friday, March 27th
FOOD / DRINKS Complimentary Beer, Wine & Snacks
TICKETS $20 Pre-Sale / $25 Regular / $30 at the Door
FashionTech Guest Curator
What does fashion lack? "Microcontrollers" according to Dutch based fashiontech designer and innovator Anouk Wipprecht. As she is working in the emerging field of "fashion-tech"; a rare combination of fashion design combined with engineering, science and interaction/user experience design, she created an impressive body of tech-enhanced designs bringing together fashion and technology in an unusual way. She creates technological couture; with systems around the body that tend towards artificial intelligence; projected as 'host' on the human body, her designs move, breath, and react to the environment around them. She recently launched 'Synapse' (wireless biosignals) and the Robotic Spider Dress, a second Intel-Edison based design, during CES 2015 (Consumer Electronics Show), Las Vegas. Anouk is currently based in the USA, and is resident at AutoDesk, Cirque du Soleil, Sparkfun, Microsoft Research Labs, and Intel.
Cross Campus is a membership-based, collaborative work environment and business event venue. "Our vision is to redefine the concept of ‘office’ by making it more inspiring, productive, and socially connected. We do this through great space design, frictionless provision of workspace and services, and market-leading event programming."
With thirty five thousand square feet between our locations in Santa Monica and Pasadena, Cross Campus serves a large and diverse segment of SoCal’s creative, startup and technology communities. Founded in 2012 in Santa Monica, Cross Campus is expanding aggressively throughout Southern California.

-- Fast Company
A forum for human technology in its most literal form - shared knowledge. Fueled by fancy pastries, an exceptionally well-stocked open bar and a room abuzz with stylish people.
-- The LA Times
If you haven't been to a Mindshare LA event, you haven't seen Angelenos at their eclectic best.
A forward-thinking cultural salon. New ideas flow as liberally as the alcohol.

This is what it would be like if the internet jumped out of the box and grabbed your arm for a trip into Alice's Wonderland of ideas and madmen.
