We have joined forces with Jasna Rok. She is the first ambassador to join our new Fashion Tech Alliance (FTA).
FTA was set up with the purpose of creating a network that serves the fashion technology space around issues of design thinking, retail tech, sustainable tech, manufacturing, lifestyle tech and the adoption of wearable technology.
Who is Jasna Rok?
Rethinking clothing, textiles, and the fashion industry as a whole, Jasna Rokegem is a young and energetic pioneer who launched the first Fashion Tech design studio in Belgium. She combines innovative fashion and cutting-edge technology by not only creating unique projects and collections but by also bringing these to life using techniques such as virtual and augmented reality. Providing a window to show the endless possibilities of technology and science today, it is through interactive fashion that Jasna is making them visible, tangible and understandable for the big audience.
“What makes her a great partner is that she is brilliant when it comes to combining innovative fashion and cutting-edge technology.”
It is no secret that we are fans of the visionary yet pragmatic Jasna Rok, therefore it made sense that she be our first ambassador. What makes her a great partner is that she brilliantly combines innovative fashion with cutting-edge technology. Jasna has also shown that she is driven to explore endless possibilities of technology and science in her own unique way, by successfully using different techniques such as virtual and augmented reality to examine her vision. On the partnership, Jasna shared “Fashnerd is my Fashion Tech bible because it is the perfect combination of facts, futuristic ideas, intelligent tech content, wearables, of the two pioneering minds behind it: Muchaneta and Mano ten Napel. This is what makes this platform so cool!”
FashNerd co-founder Mano ten Napel added, “I think it is great how Jasna successfully implements the latest research and technology in the field of wearables, sensors, artificial intelligence, and electronics. She can translate the magic of technology in a way where she is helping people to imagine how it can be of added value, and how it can combine with the beauty of the design.”
