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 where wondering about. When other designers use technology in their designers it turns out te look very futuristic. Our goal was to insert new technologies in clothing but in a sophisticated way. We also tought about what we wanted to say with the clothing. Because new technologies are used for diferrend 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 groupe was split up, to make moodboards for color, material, concept, finishing and my job was to make the collage for shillouet.
Sketches moodboard about silhouets
Progres By looking at my sketches, I decided that I liked the big white coat the most and find it interessting how the pattern would be. with this design i coose to put the touchscreen into it. I came to the idea when i was travaling by train that i was wondering waht other people listeing to. so many people had earpods in. maybe the listend the same musiic as i do! bu i wans to shy to ask. so waht if you can use the touchscreen to chancnge your musiic and others can see. The motivation is bigger to begin a conversation that way. As a groupe we discused the fabrics so it would become a collection becoase of the material. everybody had one outfit to take care of by design. we also designed a dessin to print on the fabric. I used the print too. white on white with puff ink. What makes the coat also intersting is the use of layers, but acturally it's all one piece. In the coat I left the lining out, because of the touchscreen is not that good developt, 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. and it will show on the screen what band or songwrither you are listening to.
