Christopher Burch, a serial entrepreneur points out that both fashion and technology industries have undergone evolution. However, one factor that has remained constant is their interdependence. Shining light on the trends of the past and the present gives a clear view of what to expect in the future.
Today, technology is being used to advance the innovations in the fashion industry. For instance, helmets have been worn for bike protection. Advancement in technology has resulted in the creation of airbags, which shall be worn around the neck. During a fall, they pop out to protect the head. They are perceived to be more fashionable than the normal helmets as they allow one to have a clear view given that they are worn around the neck. Special gloves have been designed for fire fighters. They are used as hand symbol at a scene of fire. Fashion designers are recycling materials to come up with innovative designs like t-shirts and jackets from bicycle’s inner tubes. Designers are coming up with clothes and shoes that capture kinetic energy from movement. They can be used to charge phones and watches.
In the past, the music entertainment scene evolved from the boom box, Walkman to an iPod. In the past, these products were considered more fashionable. Presently, fashion gurus are using technology to develop functional designs like the drink making dress and the self-painting dress. Another correlation between the two sectors was experienced when a fashion designer allowed her models to wear Google glasses on a runaway. The future of technology and fashion lies in the hands of both industries since they need each other to grow.
