Virgil Abloh x Bespoke Ind x Nike Reconstruction Workshop @ Dedece Sydney

Virgil Abloh x Bespoke Ind x Nike Reconstruction Workshop @ Dedece Sydney

Virgil Abloh held a Nike Reconstruction Workshop in the top level of Pop-Up space and those VIP guests lucky enough to have scored an invite got a personal insight into Virgil’s creative process, and got to flex their own creativity when they reconstructed their own pair of Nike kicks – right in front of his eyes.

Invited workshop participants ( and a few very lucky ” Kids” plucked at random from the long line queued out the front ) were each given a pair of Nike Air Force 1’s, some velcro, coloured swoosh’s, hammers and tools to create their own authentic shoes.
