I've had the leasure of supporting Candice Dixon and Dwayne Dixon and their innovative Carnival Costume venture, Sugacayne Designs, through the Design Fabrication Zone. The collective wild creativity of Candice and her team of student designers gathered through a hackathon, made for beautiful, innovative work. Candice pushed carnival costume design to new heights by everaging digital fabrication tech to new heights, and pairs it with her extensive skills in traditional costume design to break new grounds, year after year. The DFZ team and I offered support in the form of design consultation, 3D printer and laser cutter programming and operation, and hackathon coordination.
