A fashion event featuring innovative and experimental works in computational apparel design, interactive clothing, and technology-based fashion.
This production provides an exhibitory, creative outlet for students to present their works. Each project [re]interprets the conceptual goal of a seamless relationship between technology and fashion.
The last fashion event at the media lab occurred in 1997 with the enormous wearables show. The zeitgeist [and hence the tone of the event] was of the beginning of the internet-optimistic era, with rosy visions of the future. Now, with the elegant ubiquity of cellphones and ipods [and nary a head-mounted display in sight], we’re ready to redefine and reinvent the form and function of clothing within a technological scope.
Clothing communicates. It identifies, it connects, it remembers.
seamless will feature clothing that speaks to us on a personal level, re-evaluating our relationship with clothes, ourselves, others, and our environment. Street-savvy and culture-conscious, these are real clothes that inspire and provoke.
