The Future of Fashion?

The current exhibition "Technosensual: where fashion meets technology" at the Quartier 21 presents electronic textiles and wearable technologies created by international haute tech couture designers. The "Circuit Dress" by Nicky Assmann (NL), a wearable instrument based on the principles of circuit bending, plays with the current design trend in which technology is incorporated into fabrics as invisibly and flexibly as possible This dress completely reverses this trend. Twelve coils are incorporated into the dress, each of which is played by connecting them with one another through copper finger plates. In this way new sounds are created. Click here for a video.
