How technology and fashion come together
Zac Posen succeeded in coming up with a cognitive dress that changes color based on your activity upon social media; Chanel has a history of working with 3D printers to create ensembles, more so Chanel went as far as ‘launching’ a space shuttle during their showcase in 2017. Tech has become an eminent part of the fashion world, whether you are looking down on your Victoria Secret phone case right now or balling your eyes out at the newly introduced Nike Power Laces – everything we once thought was impossible is possible now. Women and Tech Gadgets have been a topic here before now let’s focus and tech and fashion.
Here we have a list of all the things that have embraced technology with arms wide open and that show how technology and fashion come together:
1. Phone Cases
You have to know this unless you have been living under a rock for almost a decade. Embracing the hype since, after the emergence of Apple iPhones, phone cases have become rather a personality trait than phone protection guards. From high end, Louis Vuitton phone cases to silicone printed Victoria Secret ones. You can now get them customized even – a big shift from being useful and practical to make a fashion statement.
2. The Apple Watch
Ever since the advent of Apple Watches whose purpose was to be wristband that makes access to our phone easy while you are physically busy – but as of 2015 the world’s most expensive watch released. Obviously a statement maker, this watch is priced at $17,000 with an 18 karat gold case and red buckle. Apple watches are a big part of socialite’s life; it is a status determining factor rather than a technological wonder! However, nowadays there are also valid alternatives around.
3. Nike’s Power Laces
Nike has established itself as a powerhouse in the athleisure department. Whether you are a sports junkie or have genuinely trouble to tie your shoes then this expensive solution by Nike is your way to go. This pair of self-tying shoes is the cornerstone for customizing shoes according to our needs.
4. 3D printed Dresses
Remember Queen Ramonda from Black Panther, well her headpiece was made using a 3D printer. Black Panther even won an Academy Award for Best Costume. 3D printers have widely been used in the field to produce a fabric that can become a sustainable option instead of the conventional method of producing fabric.

5. Google Jacket
Technology and fashion are joining hands in courtship. Levis and Google have come together to put together a jacket that will help users and wearers to access their phones by tapping the jacket sleeve in a certain place. This jacket will be a statement maker for all the right reasons, like all other novel inventions this fashion piece will be priced over and above the reach of the common man.
These are just a few inventions to name. It’s just the beginning of 2020 and we can expect a new wave of inventions that would hit home, from customizable shoes, new watches to Led powered t-shirts – with technology taking over the fashion world the possibilities are truly limitless. ‘What you wear is an expression of who you are’ said Diane Kruger and rightly so.
