Imagine a world where your clothes regulate your body temperature, monitor your vital signs, and your necklace begins to glow when the sun goes down.

Today, this is achievable. Modern fashion designers are no stranger to the potential of merging clothing with electronics. Make Fashion is an initiative that introduces talented local designers to cutting edge new technologies, subject matter experts and wearable technology.

From information gathering to communication, modern computing has evolved into an invisibly integrated system woven into our everyday lives. As we become even more unified with technology the next step in this evolution is wearable computing.

As the mobile tech revolution winds down over the next 5-7 years, wearable and embedded technology is poised to earn:

Personal wearables – $10 B (2016- Gartner)
Smartphone Accessories – $20 B (2012- ABI)
US Apparel and Jewelry Manufacture – $40 B (2013 – IBISWorld)

Wearable technology has already started to deliver innovation: 

Improving health and fitness awareness
Reducing cognitive overload or distraction – Personal customization / utility

The fashion show gala is the largest annual Make Fashion event. Here, designers are paired with engineers and technologists to produce a ground-breaking runway spectacle fusing fashion, technology, performance, and light.
