Research Paper: Science Fashion – Wearable Technology

February 14, 2010

What are these people wearing? Bizarre make-up, hair and not to mention the clothes! Well this is the typical fashion style for the cyber-goth. There’s really nothing weird about it, in fact I think their fashion is quite interesting. Take a look at all those electronic accessories on their garments. It was predicted long ago that we are able to create a high tech garment that incorporates all kinds of technology such as keeping us warm, energy generating system, self cleansing system etc. However, in the 21st century we can, with all the advanced technology developments, those electronic accessories will not merely be accessories, they will be functional.

Nano technology, micro tubing and many more new technologies have been developed to incorporate in fashion. Many more new designers are aiming to create a wearable technology that is both aesthetical and functional. (Take a look at : Hussein Chalayan, disposable fashion, energy generating fashion)

Perhaps the cyber-goth style doesn’t appeal to you that much, but there are different types of styles and looks in these science fashion. I think wearable technology will be the next generation of future fashion.

    Moritz Waldemeyer is the man behind the fascinating technology of Hussein Chalayan’s collection. He is fusing technology with art, fashion and design to open up spectecular new worlds of possibility. There’s an article on him in ’60 innovators shaping our creative future.’ Maybe something to look at..!

    Great post, as a designer I think it’s important for us to keep pushing the boundaries of innovation in our field. I was delighted to click on your link of Hussein Chalayan and find that it directed me to his Airplane Dress.

    One of my favorite books is called The Fashion of Architecture by Bradely Quinn, this dress is featured in that book.

    Keep writing and researching…
