Technology and fashion industries have evolved together for several years. According to technology and fashion expert, Chris Burch, both industries will continue growing together. He argues that technology becomes fashionable at one time while fashion becomes technologically fashionable. The legend further believes that a quick look at the past and the present can give an insight into the future.
Looking At the Past and Present
For years, technology has grown based on what people think is fashionable. From the boom boxes and two deck radio cassettes to the Walkman of the 1990s and the iPod of the 21st century, it is clear that the two industries have had a fascinating synergy. In the modern world, fashion designers are using the broad technology field to design standard innovations. Experts have it that technology is like a playground and the deeper you dive, the greater the rewards of technology.
Technology and Fashion Industries Synergism
Technology needs technology to gain popularity. For instance, in the 1980s the 70s boom box became more popular after they were added in movie story lines. Another proof of technology getting help from the fashion industry is the incidence of Google glasses. Wearing Google glasses had little acceptance until recently when a fashion designer made her models to wear them while on the catwalk.
Judging from the past and the present, we can predict that the future of technology is guiding fashion to its future. Technology will help build beautiful fashions as wells as creating functional fashions. Therefore, the future of these two industries lies in what they learn from each other. In the future, technology will be used to protect humans. For instance, air bags for cyclist and gloves to aid firefighters in communication are in the pipeline. Moreover, shoes and clothing that generate kinetic energy to power watches, mobile gadgets, and mp3 are underway.
