Technology & Fashion | Writing for HP October 5, 2010Posted by Lauren Cooke in Fashion, Inspiration, Social Media.
I have recently been getting involved in some writing with Hewlett Packard, about the relationship between fashion and technology. It is actually just the sort of geeky topic that gets my creative juices flowing, and I really enjoyed writing my most recent article. So, I though I would share my ramblings with you, to see what you think…
When it comes to thinking about what technology will achieve in the future, you are quite at liberty to let you imagination run riot. After all, just a few short years ago it was totally inconceivable to image that man would walk on the moon, or that people would be able to do calculations on their phones. Don’t even get me started on the wonders of smart phones, life-changing laptops and the advances in transport. Humanity has flown in planes that caused a sonic boom (hello, Concorde), driven cars that combine the ultimate speed with the ultimate luxury (the ever-amazing Bugatti Veyron), and developed bombs that have terrifying power. Letting yourself get carried away when thinking about the future, is probably the only way that you can get your head around the potential!
There are some technologies that I cannot wait to see related to fashion. Indeed, even the seemingly static industry of makeup is making some massive steps into future technologies, such a gene therapy and colour changing blusher. With these sorts of progressions already in the pipeline, it seems likely that the extremely rich fashion industry with be thinking a few steps ahead for what technology can do for them.
