A week-long seminar for designers and fashion-forward thinkers hosted by A Bit off the Top – an Initiative of Federation CJA in Montreal in August, 2014 (exact dates TBA).
 
 This  week-long seminar for designers and fashion-forward thinkers hosted by A Bit off the Top – an Initiative of Federation CJA in Montreal. Immersive, intense, free, week-long workshops for anyone, ages 21 to 30, who’s curious about the connections between Jewishness and modern culture.

Tent: Fashion will illuminate the multi-faceted connection between Jews and fashion. We’ll learn about Jews’ involvement in pattern making, tailoring, and other garment businesses. In light of Jews’ prominent role in North American garment workers’ movements, we’ll consider the many social and creative aspects of the industry through behind-the-scenes tours of textile and clothing factories.

Throughout the course of the week we’ll learn about fashion trades like wig making, fur, and tanning in hands-on workshops and visits. Tent will also host private talks and workshops with contemporary designers and fashion bloggers. The week will culminate with a public event, where Tent participants will get the chance to pitch ideas for new projects to pursue after the program.

If required, lodging will be provided; most meals will be provided. Participants are responsible for their own transportation to and from Montreal.
