What is Fashion Tech?

It has, by my count, 595 billion google search results, seven dedicated meetup groups with thousands of attendees, a half dozen conferences, and a dedicated startup accelerator. Further, we at Third Wave Fashion, track over 500 fashion tech startups in our own database. This space is big and expanding fast. But what, exactly, does “fashion tech” mean in these contexts? In short, it describes tech startups that are focused on the fashion world. But it’s not quite that simple.

Seamless: Digital Fabrication jacket uses a variety of digital and analog tools.


With the use of digital computing and fabrication methods we are able to rapidly prototype and assemble new designs. You can use any 2D or 3D software to create patterns ready for cutting. The machines allow a us a wide range of possibilities, so try to take advantage of the accuracy, precision, and repetitions these machines can achieve. If you don’t have them, these tools can be found at your local Fab Lab, tech shop, or digital fabrication laboratory (if you don’t have them at home, and aside from the laser cutter, you probably will) book a time slot for fabrication with your local fablab or tech shop.

Recomended Tools & Materials: Sewing Machine, Needle & Thread, Laser Cutter, Fabric (3meters), Pattern Digital Tooling: Find your pattern. Small scale! Rescale your model and fit your pieces within the constraints of the material as well as the laser cut and send your file. Laser cut. Le Tricodeur — quand le numérique et la maille se rencontrent.

Brooke Roberts

It was while presenting at the inaugural FashTech conference in London that we happened to meet this incredible woman. Having taken a great interest in Brooke's presentation, Sarah met Brooke after the event. Since then she has become our go to person for all things legal within the creative and technology realms. Always professional and open minded, she has become an invaluable member of the team and we were overjoyed when she agreed to not only star in a photo shoot at the Taylor Vinters office at Tower 42, but also agreed to be interviewed for our blog.

Pauline van Dongen's "Ruff" is a 3D-Printed Collar With a Life of Its Own. Ruff is a new 3D printed responsive collar by Pauline van Dongen, who is pushing the forefront of wearables.

Pauline van Dongen's "Ruff" is a 3D-Printed Collar With a Life of Its Own

Working with architect Behnaz Farahi, the two crafted flexible wearables that can move on their own with the help of nitinol and a small electric signal. Inspired by historic fashions of ruffled collars from 16th and 17th centuries, this 3D printed wearable is a look into how fashion can help us interact through movement. Pauline van Dongen has completed a number of intriguing wearable technology projects in recent times including Vigour, a smart cardigan for those advancing in age, and she recently unveiled a chic solar panel shirt to charge your phone. Her latest project, Ruff debuted at the 2015 SXSW when van Dongen talked about the future of 3D printed wearables. Project Jacquard. Projects - NEFFA. Wearable Technology. Electroloom.

Display - d-torso Paper craft by Aki Co.,Ltd.

The d-torso EVE is made of 123 pieces, and ADAM of 128. With no glue or scissors required for assembly, the models are designed for everyone’s building enjoyment. The d-torso was originally invented by Yuki Matsuoka in 1998 to support his wife’s exhibition of knitwear, and the human shape has been its driving theme ever since. We have developed original technology to shape models of objects not by their outer surfaces, but in precision slices. While we have applied that technology to creating animals, machines and other types of structures for the last 15 years, the root has always been the human form. The d-torso does not have outer surfaces or skin. The d-torso Mini ADAM & EVE Towers are miniature versions of the original EVE Tower & ADAM Tower. Design of the Week: Kinematics Dress.
