Foundry powered by IFA Paris, opened its doors on September 23, 2019 at 18 - 24 Quai de La Marne in Paris’ creative 19th district. Foundry is a dynamic fashion tech lab and first of its kind in Paris. The lab is a space for ideas to become reality which members and general public can get an insight of how the future of fashion is going to look.

One can experience great pieces of technology from Foundry’s partners such as by TG3D Studio, IBM and N-Hega inside the lab. The TG3D Studio’s 3D body scanner scans a person in just three seconds and then creates his/her own 3D avatar. Inside the makerspace, Foundry members can create to their heart’s content using software such as N-Hega’s pattern digitizer.

Foundry’s 400 square metres comprises of co-working spaces, a tech demo room and an experimental makerspace equipped with cutting edge technical equipment. It will enable member entrepreneurs, startups and students to work alongside each other - creating the opportunity for them to make extraordinary leaps in fashion and innovation.

IFA Paris is a fashion school that offers students around the world a vast range of unique and tailored courses at undergraduate and postgraduate level. It gives students the choice to study in three of the most globally influential fashion hubs – Paris, Shanghai and in Istanbul.

Foundry is open Monday – Friday 9am to 6pm for the general public and industry to visit and desk spaces are now available for entrepreneurs and start-ups inside the lab.
