This Week in Fashion Tech…

Rounding up this weeks headlining news from the Fashion Tech space.

With London Technology Week looming, this week we found ourselves shining a spotlight on the event that promises to represent the technology ecosystem of London. Surely this means that we can look forward to the bustling city being overtaken by innovation? Well one can hope.

Also this week, we attended the launch of VerveLife. The Motorola audio products have been designed with the kind of technology that will compliment the busy life of those on the go. With prices starting at £59.95, they are the perfect plus one for an active sport enthusiast.

As #FashionTechBerlin creeps closer we took a moment to share with you one of its greats gracing their stage, fashion designer Pauline van Dongen.  In this must-watch video, van Dongen speaks about technology becoming an aesthetic and no longer being a tool.

As the week came to an end, we rounded it up with news from socially responsible fifth-graders from Centerville Elementary School. Hailing from across the pond, the young innovators showcased environmentally conscious outfits that they had made themselves from recycled materials on the runway. What made it newsworthy is the feel good factor of the young taking such an interest in sustainability.
