They seem like two completely unrelated industries: technology and fashion. We know that technology, particularly the industrial revolution, made fashion possible. For that reason, it is important for us to consider the benefits of keeping up with the right fashion trends. The future of technology and fashion combines some amazing potential, but some of the current trends have been creative but not as strange and out of bounds as we would normally think.
One example of a fashion/technology blend is that of the bicycle helmet which was re-imagined by a designer named Anna Haupt to be more of an airbag design rather than a big helmet. This was designed to deploy upon impact, and looks more like a scarf rather than a big helmet which is often unsightly. The Google Glass was seen as a piece for the eccentrics, but the concept was re-imagined by many when models wore it while walking on the catwalk. Additionally, designers have also come up with interesting ways of being able to re-use old items to create new things. These new designs and applications of technology have also included some of the more outlandish items such as a dress which is able to re-create itself.
