FTH 2022 Applications Now Open!
Please join us for an exciting weekend of collaboration and exploration at the intersection of fashion and technology! Now in its ninth year, the Fashion Tech Hackathon is a FREE event that brings together university students from different majors, backgrounds and locations and gives them resources and space to learn new skills and create innovative projects. With the support of mentors from a variety of universities, industries and disciplines, the event fosters networking, collaboration and innovation. Whether it's designing wearable tech, a new innovative app, or an inventive way to further develop existing technologies, student teams will have the opportunity to solve problems using fashion and technology (and win some awesome prizes)! Sponsors and mentors have the opportunity to work and network with potential future employees, and will have access to innovative, leading-edge products and software.
For 2022, we will feature an online, virtual hackathon to allow participants the ability to help define the future of fashion from the comfort of their own homes! We look forward to your participation in the 2022 hack!
