As years go by, people’s taste and preference keep on changing. The fashion and technology industries have not been exceptional. They have evolved together over the years as consumer preferences change. What is considered fashionable today may not hold the same position tomorrow. Likewise, a technology that is fashionable today will be faced out by another tomorrow. According to fashion and technology expert, Chris Burch, the past and the present day events can help us foresee the future.
Past and Present Relationships
From the 70s the fashion and technology industries have been showing some relationships. For instance, the boom boxes and two cassette decks were popular in the 70s. Coming into the 80s, they became even more popular after they were added to movie stories. In the 90s Walkman became popular only to be faced out ten years later by iPods. From this trend, it can be concluded that technology grows based on is considered fashionable.
Fashion designers of the 21st century have discovered that marrying technology with fashion is the only way to remain relevant in the market. Experts argue that technology has endless opportunities, which when explored can yield high-quality standards and functionality.
The next frontier that synergism of technology and fashion can yield is protecting humans. For instance, firefighters find it difficult to communicate with each other while in their line of duty. Frontline gloves designed by Ashwin Rajan and Kevin Cannon present a great avenue for them to communicate with each other through hand gestures. Another advancement that is on the way is the development of prototype shoes that would produce kinetic energy enough to power mobile gadgets while the wearer is walking or running.
A Perfect Example of Synergism
Each of these industries requires assistance from each other. Wearing glasses was not accepted by many people until recently when an incredible fashion designer came to their help. She made her model catwalk while wearing the glasses and almost instantly the glasses gained popularity across the world.
