WEARABLE TECHNOLOGIES WORKSHOP IN POLI TECNICO DI MILANO SUPPORTED BY THE EUROPEAN SPACE AGENCY
The aim of Fashion in Orbit is to explore new visions of fashion in the age of technology taking inspiration by Space and understand better how we can be more conscious of the transformation technology brings.Upside down, floating, emotional state, connection, transition, personal space are the keywords chosen by the group to link all projects in one capsule collection imagining life in Space and the extraordinary experiences as weightless looking at the Earth from another point of view. All the conceptual works represent different identities and backgrounds and share an intimate relationship with the cosmos which is expressed through clothing with new languages full of emotion, feeling and poetry mixing fabrics and materials in unusual ways. The interactions between the human being, the body and the environment were explored and reinvented suggesting new needs and scenarios in which all the senses participate in the dialogue with the garment by activating bio-sensors, luminescent signals and mechanical movement to make explicit our intentions.
