To commemorate Virgil Abloh’s “THE TEN” footwear collaboration with Nike, Heron Preston is hosting two DIY workshops entitled “WEARABLES” in New York City this September. Fortunate attendees will be invited to create their own visual book with “WEARABLES” wording embellished on diverse textiles. Centering upon the Swoosh’s “FOAM” technology, the participants will also be prompted to develop their own archive of “wearables” apparel provided by Nike or any content of clothing to their heart’s content. All in all, “the goal is to experiment and have fun. Bend rules & walk away wearing your creation,” Preston expressed in an Instagram post of the announcement.
Only 30 seats will be available for each workshop. You will need to comment on the announcement below to nab a spot, posting your desired title of a “WEARABLES” image book. “[The] best 60 titles will receive the code and secret link from me via DM,” said the designer. Both workshops will commence on September 8 at Nike’s OFF CAMPUS space — the first installment will run from 2-3:30 p.m. EST and the second from 4:30-6 p.m. EST.

On SEPT 8, I am hosting 2 workshops in NYC called “WEARABLES” with @nike in honor of @virgilabloh and his @off____white collaboration launch for “The Ten”. The 1st workshop is 2-330pm. The 2nd workshop is 430-6pm. Participants in each workshop will hand make an image book of “wearables” printed on various fabrics. The focus will be “FOAM” technology. You will then be challenged with customizing and applying your library of “wearables” to garments supplied by Nike or you can bring your own. The goal is to experiment and have fun. Bend rules & walk away wearing your creation. There are 30 slots per workshop. In order to sign up I will send an access code to you. In order to get that access code, please comment below what you would title your image book of “wearables”? Best 60 titles will receive the code and secret link from me via DM.
