Presenting the present day state of fashion technology, and a glimpse into a future where fashion and technology merge.

Despite technological advances in new materials, design processes, artificial intelligence, 3D-printing, miniaturized electronics and design software, changes in the fashion industry and everyday apparel have not been as significant as we might expect. Should the fashion industry embrace any of these innovations, its system could change completely within only one or two seasons. This book shows what the future of fashion could look like, according to designers, scientists, industry professionals and theorists in the fashion tech field. It unites their different perspectives on the challenges and explores alternatives to the plentitude of discarded garments buried in landmasses. Unfolding Fashion Tech: Pioneers of Bright Futures offers a hopeful vista for the future of fashion, textiles and technology.
A special timeline insert 1600_2020 places the pioneering Fashion Tech projects in the historical context of innovation.

Marina Toeters, fashion tech designer, selected an overview of fifty pioneering fashion tech projects realised in the last twenty years. These projects are complemented by eight short theoretical and practical articles to put the growing global fashion tech scene in perspective. Written by professionals from the fields of technology, fashion and academia, the articles contain up-to-date information that will allow the reader to meet or catch up with the field.
