Fashion and technology: a guide to materials and applications

Genova, Aneta, author; Moriwaki, Katherine, author

Technology has always impacted the practice of fashion design. Though fashion and technology have long intersected, recent developments in computation have enabled the adoption of new methods, tools, and approaches to design. From materials to new manufacturing processes of the industrial age, advancements in technology have driven forward our understanding of the aesthetics, style, and functionality of garments and accessories. 'Fashion and Technology' provides a conceptual framework for how new technologies are used in fashion design and shows how they can be implemented into the design process. This practical guide includes highly visual tutorials that introduce students and practitioners to designing with electronics - such as LEDs, sensors, electroluminescent materials, conductive and reactive materials - and digital fabrication technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting
