SUSTAINABILITY / Manufacturing
The Fashion market is characterized by the rapidity with which a product becomes outmoded. Enterprises producing clothes, shoes, bags and other accessories generate wastes at a fast rhythm, due to the continuous change of collections. Manufacturing is one of the most important steps in the production process. This is where you source your material, source your labor and source your distribution. There are two types of manufacturing: domestic and offshore.
AI | AR | VR | XR / Immersive Technology
Immersive technology refers to technology that blurs the line between the physical world and digital or simulated world, thereby creating a sense of immersion. Technology that makes the user feel and experience a digital world as though they are inside it. This is primarily referred to as “virtual reality”, but it also includes and/or features technologies like stereoscopic 3D, haptics (touch), sound, and gesture/motion control.
CRYPTOCURRENCY/ Blockchain + Bitcoin
Best known as the technology behind digital currencies, blockchain is now set to disrupt the fashion industry with the potential to remove the opacity of the apparel supply chain. The fashion and retail world will become one with technology, the line between these two industries is blurring and is reflected in trends such as change in the Brick and Mortar structures, virtual realities, artificial intelligence, robots, 3D printing, IoT and blockchain.

Think Reformation, Everlane, Re/Done, ShopStyle or Spring. For everyone else, this intersection has yet to reach its full potential.
BREAKING Into Fash Tech Industry
One of the hardest and most crowded industries to get into is fashion. While the path to success usually involves some combination of hard work, good timing, and luck, people's foot-in-the-door creation stories are often more varied—and more intriguing. Do you have a background in computer science ortechnology?
3D PRINTING/ Hardwares
Advancements in 3D printing hardware, software, materials and methods have allowed 3D printing to became prevalent and relevant in industries such as toys, food, health and fashion. The more interesting uses of 3D printing has been in the production of components as hardware stand-ins during the initial production line setup and test
DIVERSITY/ Women Empowerment
Day by day, technology changes the way we work and plays an ever growing role in the fashion industry. With this evolution, we see an increasing number of women conquering the field and making it their own. Women make major gains in technology and business, highlighting the importance of cultivating a more inclusive culture in traditionally male-dominated industries.
Wearable technology, wearables, fashionable technology, wearable devices, tech togs, or fashion electronics are smart electronic devices that can be worn on the body as implants or accessories.
