It has been a fascinating journey to ever un-ending change in fashion industry, as well as the technological industry. These two industries have been seen to experience similar growth over time. How technology and fashion have grown, can be illustrated by the music industry. In the 70s, boom box was seen as such a fascinating creation. Over time, it was replaced by the two cassette decks, then there was the Walkman and a decade late the iPod was invented.
Currently, fashion designers are more concerned in creating what serves the market need, as well as align to the current technological needs. This combination brings innovation to a whole new better level. Technology is seen as a platform that provides designers with un-ending possibilities as well as rewarding them with change towards better innovation. This has seen the creation of the Dare Droid as well as Pseudomorphs, the self-painting dress, as some of the most recent inventions.
Fashion advancements have been in such a way that designs are now made using technology that provides protection to the users. A good example is a bike airbag which the rider wears around the neck, so that it pops out to protect one’s head during impact. This has been seen to replace the unfashionable bike protection, thanks to Anna Haupt and Teresa Alstin the inventors of the airbag. Unlike helmets, one has better visibility while wearing the neckwear.
What is even more amazing, designers have been known to use materials that are recycled to come up with mind-blowing inventions. A good example is jackets and T-shirts created from inner tubes of a bicycle by SegraSegra. Most are the times when technology and fashion borrow from each other, one relying on the other to gain popularity.
