Wearable Tech
How to inserd new technics in clothing? that was the question that I and a group of other students from the school of the arts in Utrecht were wondering about. When other designers use technology in their designers it turns out tp look very futuristic. Our goal was to insert new technologies in clothing but in a sophisticated way. We also thought about what we wanted to say with the clothing. Because new technologies are used for differend things. To communicate is one of them, but we wanted to go back to the real communication. face to face. we want to use the technologies to communicate in real life with people. to be connected again. As a groupe we thought about our target group. we chose the millanials. Young people with a busy life. The group was split up, to make moodboards for color, material, concept, finishing and my job was to make the collage for shillouet.

Progres By looking at my sketches, I decided to realise the the big white coat in fabric. I chose the coat because of the interessting pattern and the use of layering. The next question was what kind of new techniques I would insert to get to the communication, for that I chose the little piece of Touchscreen. I thought by myself, I would realy like to have a coat like that! I came to the idea when I was travaling by train, I saw a lot of people listenening to music and I was wondering about the kind of music they would listening to. so what if you can use the touchscreen to change your music and others can see. The motivation is bigger to begin a conversation that way. As a groupe we discused what kind of fabrics we wanted to use. Everybody made one outfit from scratch. we also designed a dessin to print on the fabric., white on white with puff ink. What makes the coat also interrsting is the use of layers, but actually it's all one piece. In the coat I left the lining out, because of the development of the touchscreen. I want to go on with this project so it will work someday. It has to connect directley to your mobile phone if you store it in you pockets, and you can control your music with it. To get the connection with the people arount you, the touchscreen will show the track you are listening to. If someone reconise the song you have direcly a connection with that person and a conversations could be the following action.
