There has been a dynamic change in both the fashion and the technological industries over the past years. The music industry has evolved from the 70s boom band that allowed an individual to play music on one side while the other could be used to record music from another or the playing cassette. In the 80s, the boom band introduced the movie concept. In the 90s, there was the introduction of Walkman, which allowed one to listen to music alone without distracting the people around them. It later evolved and saw the introduction of iPod, which was more personalized and small in size.
According to Anouk Wipprecht, fashion is a playground where one can venture into deeper and deeper for greater rewards. The Dutch fashion designer came up with the self-painting dress and the drink-making dress. These are both fashion designs that have been influenced by the current technology.
The airbag for a cyclist that is worn around the neck was a design by Teresa Alstin and Anna Haupt. It is considered less cumbersome, and while protecting the cyclist, it maintains the cyclist’s clear view when it is closed, unlike helmets. The front line gloves that were designed by Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Canon allow firefighters to use informative gestures while they are at work.
There are attires which have been made from recycling materials like inner bicycle tubes that were recycled by SegraSegra to create jackets and t-shirts. There was also a gown created from recycled radiator copper by Emma Whiteside. Currently, Seleda Martin is trying to invent shoes that can charge the phone while the wearer is in motion. The stigma of wearing Google glasses was overcome recently when Dianne Von Furstenberg’s model wore them on the runway. That is another way where fashion came to rescue a dying technology.
