Innovation & Technology
WAAH! 2020 will be looking further into the future. What will we be wearing in 40 years? Will the ever faster advancing technology be having an impact on what we’ll be wearing? Will it be Fashion or Function?
For our showcase in 2020 we are challenging designers (and students) to look at the future of fashion and clothing. To look at trends and innovations in technology and materials and to imagine how these will effect the things we will be wearing in 40 years or so.
There will be 5 categories:
Will the discussion on our privacy have an impact on the way we dress and express ourselves through our clothing? Will the gap between our online and offline identity grow even further? Do we dress differently online and offline? Will the importance of functionality of our clothing, through the growing possibilities of technology, exceed the role of fashion and design? Pollution, climate, radiation, connectivity, charging…. how can our clothing play a role in these?
