One of the main discussions on today’s radio broadcasting centred around following topic: Is it better to have a partner who is the opposite of yourself or one who has the same interests. There was no satisfying result and so I was wondering: Are fashion and technology a good match or should they keep away from each other?
Is it better to keep fashion in the fashion business “safe from other influences” – if that’s even possible – or add some spice and an additional layer of usefulness through technical features? Some of you may feel it’s progressive while others may call it a design blasphemy. Should #fashtech (fashion + technology) even exist? I see it as an additional kick of surprise and welcome the change with open arms.
“The next wave in wearables is set to take more of a holistic view of health and lifestyle, going beyond step-tracking to help consumers feel happy, stimulated and at their best.” (Anatomy of a Trend – A WGSN Mindset white paper). And I say: Let’s embrace the change and discover the news firsthand!
Therefore, I am giving away a 1+1 Ticket to Fashion Fusion, Magenta Night @ MAK Vienna on September 27, 2017. Julia Körner as well as Danit Peleg, the forerunners of fashion technology, will be taking part in a public panel. There will also be a Fashion Show! An event you shouldn’t miss, if you are interested in fashion innovation!
