This Week in Fashion Tech…

Rounding up this week's headlining news from the Fashion Tech space.

With graduate fashion week recently over, we took a moment to explore the educating of future fashion tech designers. In our opinion, these courses are definitely the step in the right direction for the future of fashion and we look forward to writing more about fashion technology education.

Also this week, London Technology Week had us imagining a future where robots will outnumber human beings and driverless cars will be the norm. Sounds a bit science fiction but we think that the chances of such a technology focused future happening seems more likely than not.

As the week progressed we looked at 3D printing and wondered whether we are really getting close to integrating this type of technology into normal everyday clothes? This is an ongoing conversation that will always hold our interest.

We rounded up the week with a look at the stunning creation by New York based Birce Ozkan and interaction designer and new media artist Betty Quinn who have successfully managed to combine fashion and technology in a stylishly interactive way

3D Printing Significant Step Towards Practical Clothing

It did not take long for many to realise that creating a 3D printed wearable garment is not going to be cheap. According to Jessica Rosenkrantz, who runs a design and technology studio in Boston called Nervous System, one garment could cost upward of $3,000, which leaves us to wonder, although expectations are running high that these shortcomings are about to change, are we really getting close to integrating this type of technology into normal everyday clothes?
