Dynamism is inevitable. With the change in technology, everything else follows suit. The fashion industry has over time changed with the change in technology. Therefore, with this trend, it is wise to say that with time, these two elements, fashion, and technology will always move together. In the fashion industry, an insight in the past and the now gives an impression its future.
For instance, when we look at the 70’s, the boom box was considered to be fashionable. It was a big music box that carried two cassette decks that could be used to play and record music. Using the gadget in the movies ensured its popularity grew and consequently, the desire to own one. In the 90’s, and with the introduction of the Walkman, and the ability to own a customized music playlist, the boom box started to fade. Later, with the invention of the iPod, the experience became even more personal and smaller. Therefore, technology changes and grows with what is perceived to be fashionable.
Synthesis of technology and fashion is evident. Designers are now using technology to deliver. Such use of the technology constantly demands the innovation of better and smaller devices. Several artists have merged fashion and technology to come up with unusual designs like the Drink Making Dress.
Into the future, the merge has been used to develop firefighter gloves. These can be used to enhance communication between rescuers and consequently, save lives. In cycling, designers have used technology to make a protective air bag. These designs ensure safety in case of impact and do not impair vision. Therefore these two elements co-exist as one depends heavily on the existence of the other.
