Fashtech Live Experience
16 JUNE at Harbourside Room, Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney as part of VIVID Sydney - Vivid Ideas program.
Fashtech Live Experience, hosted by TV icon Nell Schofield, presented a mind-bending collection of interactive garments by 22 designers from the sARTorial fashion collective.
Guests mingled with models and performers demonstrating prototype garments, with designers and engineers were available to provide context for the concepts and technology being shown.
This is the newest frontier in fashion, where fibre, fabric and silhouette are merged with microcomputers, sensors and artificial intelligence, to amplify the environment-sensing abilities of the human body.
The goal is sartorial fashion elegance that informs the wearers sensory systems using scientific data.
sARTorial is a creative incubator and multi-faceted design project promoting excellence in research and practice.
The sARTorial project brings together senior media artists and design and technology professionals with early career practitioners in collaborative teams and one on one mentorships to produce the interactive works for this spectacular annual showcase..
