Unlike today, the past allowed people to walk around the streets carrying their favorite stations and radio tunes. Most people walked around with radio cassettes while playing music as the other side of the tape recorded songs. In the 80s, the radio cassette trend became prominent with an added movie story line, which made the recording trend popular. The invention of the Walkman in the 90s demonstrated how individuals enjoyed music privately. A decade after the 90s, an iPod was invented. This is a clear indication that technology grows with the mass of what an individual considers innovative.
The definition of fashion and technology is currently ongoing with fashion designers providing custom-tailored goods and services through the existing innovative technology. The symbiotic relationship offers a high standard of technology use and functionality. According to a Dutch fashion guru, Anouk Wipprecht, who is prominent for her Avant grade designs, technology is like a playground. It is a place of experiment because as you explore deeper into the innovative ways, you acquire various incredible skills to empower your creativity. Anouk Wipprecht has tailored creative designs including a drink making dress, self-painting dress, the Pseudomorphs, and the DareDroid.
The Future of Fashion and Technology
Other fashion trends develop through technology to protect the users. Although wearing a bike protection may not be trendy, Terese Alstin and Anna Haupt designed a fashionable protector to be worn around the neck. The system has a popping airbag from the neckwear to offer head protection from impact.
Unless it is opened, the user has a clear visibility of the surroundings, which brings in the negative element of wearing a helmet. Through wearing Frontline Gloves tailored by Ashwin Rajan, firefighters can achieve massive protection as they can pass valuable information to their teammates through hand gestures.
