Fashions of the Future


Forbes magazine reports on the future of clothing technology. Examples include a spray-on dress and an outfit that makes you feel as if you are being hugged. This is great fodder for the technophobes who worry that this will replace human contact. For me, these ideas are wonderfully creative, but also the mixing of clothing, design and technology allows us to consider how we might view the latter when it is a, ahem, seamless part of our bodies. As they mention, clothing is already technologically sophisticated, but this show indicates the many possibilities that are just around the corner.
