Fashion and Tech

I have a more than passing interest in technology and fashion. (Seriously, I do.)

So, when I saw that there was a conference that examined the intersection of the two, I decided to attend.


The panels addressed three trends that I have observed in the marketplace:

  1. New fabrics and technologies (e.g., jeans made from low grade plastics)
  2. Online retail channels (e.g., how are retailers dealing with selling on mobile devices).
  3. How to make wearable technology that people actually want to wear (e.g., devices typically need to be plastic, but people want to wear metal).
