Fashion and technology are two industries that complement one another. These two industries have advanced together for several years. The results of this simultaneous growth are breathtaking.
The old and new technology
Devices and technologies developed in the 70’s are now obsolete. A good example is a boombox, a portable sound system drawn up in the 70’s. For years, this device has gone through a transition because of technological advances and the need to improve music experience. The resulting product is an iPod, a much smaller media player. According to fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht, merging fashion and technology is the new trend.
Milestones in fashion and technology
For the past years, several fashion veterans have successfully developed products that represent a merger of technology and style. Most of these products are meant to protect us as well rehabilitate the environment. Some of these amazing products are the bike protection device by Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt. This appliance is fitted with an airbag that protects one head in the event of an impact. Another exciting product is a jacket created by SegraSegra from the bicycle tubes. Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon have also developed gloves that will assist firefighters. Other creative fashion designers include Emma Whiteside and Soledad Martin.
