How to intergrate technology into everyday clothing? How do you imagine the future of fashion? How technology will change the fashion industry? The fourth industrial revolution is happening now, slowly changing the way we look at the clothes we wear. Thanks to the rapid changes in the field of technology and intelligent textiles, our clothes will be able to communicate with our bodies and with our smart devices.
The contionous search for distruptive, innovative technologies could help designers solve the problems of the present-day fashion industry, optimize waste in supply chains, and create new, more sustainable business models. Key words: smart fashion, wearable technology, robotics, smart textiles, Virtual Reality (VR), Artficial Intelligence (AI), smart work-wearables, functionality, silent technology, 3D printing, etc. The source of inspiration can appear both visually and through the production technique and materials.
