Over the years, technology and fashion industries have gone through many changes. Despite the multiple changes, fashion expert and investor Chris Burch believes that both industries have always grown together. According to the fashion legend, at some point technology becomes fashionable and at another instance, fashion becomes technologically fashionable. A detailed look at the past and present trends in both industries can depict the future.
Looking At the Past and Present Trends
A closer look at the boom boxes and two cassette decks of the 70s to the Walkman of 1990s, it is evident that the music player devices have evolved over the years. As the years went by, the music player designers made more portable devices. In the 21st century, iPods were invented further enhancing the portability of the devices.
From this trend, it can be argued that in this industry, what has been fashionable has been determined by the portability of the device. The smaller the device, the more technologically trendy it becomes. Currently, marrying fashion and technology is the only way to design technologically fashionable designs. Experts have it that technology provides endless options, and the more you get interested in it, the more it rewards.
Anticipating the Future
It will be fascinating to see fashion designers using technology to protect us. For instance, the development of air bags to be worn by cyclists around the neck will be fashionable as opposed to the current use of helmets, which reduce visibility. Additionally, use of technology to produce energy will be another intriguing invention. Clothing that captures kinetic energy to power watches, mp3 and cell phones are in the pipeline.
Technology and Fashion Helping Each Other
One notable event where the two industries helped each other was in the marketing of Google glasses. These glasses were not worn by many people until a creative fashion designer came to their aid. She made her models wear the glasses while on the catwalk, an exercise that helped popularize the technology.
