Syuzi Pakhchyan, media designer and editor of Fashioning Technology gave her predictions for eco-fashion in 2010, and it looking goooood for wearables!
“2010, I believe is going to be a spectacular year for developments and curious experiments in wearable technology”.
This is exciting news, especially for us. With the buzz of wearables quickly growing to a loud roar, the potential for wearable designers and designs is limitless.
Even more exciting – Syuzi’s forecast was included on a list with predictions from 15 others in the “eco-fashion” business world. The implication is awesome: the use of wearables will be just as significant (and perhaps necessary) to aid in the transition from our current business and societal models to ones of sustainability and global consciousness. From products that detect the carbon dioxide in your surrounding area to fashion designs that demonstrate the melting of the North Polar Ice Caps, wearables can be an informative platform to spark to the conversation and innovation necessary to make major changes in our world.
