Over time, the fashion and technology industries have experienced many changes. In fact, the two grows together. Technology has become fashionable while fashion has become technologically fashionable. How the two grows together is an exciting journey. According to Christopher Burch, a preview of the past and present dictates what lies ahead in the future.
The introduction of the boom box in the 70s brought excitement as one would carry around favorite stations and tunes. It had two cassette decks where one would be used to play music and the other one for recording. The use of boom box was added to movie story line. Moving forward to the 80s, the Walkman enabled one to buy a more personalized music experience. A decade later, personalized music experience became even smaller with the invention of iPod. As such, technology seems to grow with the popularity of fashion. Today, technology and fashion continue to blend. Fashion designers take pride in creating technologically popular products.
Fashion needs technology to gain popularity and vice-versa. For example, wearing glasses was highly disregarded up until recently. From a computer geek’s viewpoint, Google Glass seemed intriguing due to the stigma of wearing glasses. Also, its cost seems astronomical for an average person. However, Diane Von Furstenberg came to the rescue of those that want the technology that does not require the wearing of glasses. Since fashion shows tend to wake people up to the latest trends, Diane’s model wears Google Glass as they are walking through the runway. Therefore, accepting Google Glass technology should have a similar effect on fashion shows. Thus, growth in technology may need assistance from fashion.
As seen, technology and fashion grow together and can even benefit one other. Therefore, the future of fashion leads into the future of technology. Technology and fashion work in handy to advance each other. Technology not only advances fashion but also creates functional fashion. The greatness of the future lies in what technology and fashion learn from each other.
