So, journalist from Perspective magazine ask themselves - Will future of fashion be easier and more approachable if anyone could just print out clothes at home thanks to 3D printers? That's interesting thought right? Also, there's 2016 Silicon Valley Fashion Show and soon we'll see a potential boom in wearable tech.
Here's what they say about that topic:
There is a strong possibility that many brands who don’t like wearable technology will decide they need to embrace it. I feel that when wearable technology comes to computing, it will more likely involve jewellery and accessories. For example, smart glasses, smart watches, and potentially a smart ring. I do feel that biotech could have a role within clothing, such as creating lab grown fur, instead of using real fur from animals.
Q: What item might be most popular?
I think that the Google glasses will be most popular, but also most disliked. Everyone would love to wear a product which has the possibility for X-ray vision, or which can see things at telescopic distances. Yet, everyone will dislike others wearing a technological device with the potential for spying capabilities.
Q: What about websites like Etsy, or similar retail stores? How small producers can be more approachable then big brands?
Etsy, as an online retailer, does bring products from all cultures around the World to the limelight. It will generate more creativity in fashion, as opposed to consumers just relying on big name brands. A lot of consumer groups feel a need to be unique, and it is much easier to feel like this when wearing something created by a small designer who is selling solely through a website, compared to buying in-store from a large retailer.
It is important for consumers to learn about where products come from. In a fast-changing World we need to generate a more conscious consumer base, which is why I have created Perspective Media.
