Technology and fashion tend to grow together according to one Mr. Chris Burch. Comparing the past to the present, designers are now inventing fashion based on technological advancement. One such designer is Anouk Wipprecht, a well renowned Dutch fashion designer. She believes in marrying fashion with technology. She wowed the fashion industry by creating an avant-garde design. Her practical designs include the Pseudomorphs, the DareDroid, the self-painting dress as well as a drink-making dress. What an amazing designer!
Other fashion designers are advancing fashion using technology by creating protective gear for human beings. The latest example is the Airbag for Cyclists. Designed by Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt, this apparel is worn around the neck. And just like in a car, the airbag pops out in the case of an impact during an accident. Other than protecting the wearer, the airbag gives unobstructed view unlike when wearing a helmet. Another similar invention by Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan is the Frontline Gloves. These allow simple use of hand signaling which is ideal for firefighters at a rescue scene.
With technology, designers are now using recycled material in their inventions. From recycled radiator copper, a huge gown was created by Emma Whiteside. SegraSegra also designed t-shirts and jackets from recycled inner bicycle tubes.
Talk of unique ideas, a shoe that recharges a phone while running or walking is under development by Soledad Martin. It’s clear that the future holds great designs for the fashion industry. Especially because such ideas quickly get accepted and adopted by the public after a few fashion shows.
