The fashion industry, just like the technology industry, has experienced tremendous changes over the last few years. The two industries are almost growing at the same pace. Technology is becoming more fashionable by the day, and fashion is similarly getting more technological.
The Past and Present Fashion Trends
The boom box pioneered the technology fashion experience in the 70s by allowing users to carry along favorite tunes. That was later overtaken by the emergence of the Walkman that dominated the markets in the 80s. Currently, the iPod has featured new wireless provisions and almost unlimited memory space to carry every music or video data you need. The technology gadgets sell out depending on what people consider fashionable.
The Future Fashion Plans
According to Chris Burch, Future fashion plans will focus more on innovating protective solutions in areas considered not fashionable. For example, wearing helmets may not seem cool and blocks visibility, but Anna Haupt and Terese Alstin have created an innovative gadget that you can wear around your neck to act as a cyclist’s airbag. When a rider accidentally falls, the airbag pops up and protect the rider from any injuries. Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon have also designed frontline gloves to help firefighters to protect their teams through sign communication during an operation.
Fashion and technology can also be incorporated to create energy. Since motion can be used to generate electricity, a new clothing design has used the technology to power small gadgets like watches, mp3s, and so on.
Technology and Fashion Working Together
Sometimes technology depends on fashion to gain market penetration. A good example is the use of glasses which had little acceptance until the famous celebrities began to wear glasses and posing for memorable photos.
