Cloud Couture at NY Fashion Week Feb 3-12 #WearableWednesday

BFDA

Fashion Week always attracts a lot of people to New York, but I have to admit that I’ve never been that excited, until now. Brooklyn Fashion+Design Accelerator (BF+DA) is offering Cloud-Couture: The Intimate Connection Between Fashion and Technology. This week-long series of exhibits and events shows the connection between technology, apparel and the internet.

There are some amazing exhibitors including Billie Whitehouse: Wearable Experiments, Forster Rohner, Paxie, Pankaj & Nidhi, The Crated, DryDye and Chromat. There’s also a few you’ve probably heard me fuss about, like Francis Bitonti Studio, Sensoree, Adidas, Hexoskin and NASA. Of course, Adafruit will have some wearables on display, so all you fans can have fun playing “guess the microcontroller”. Well, at least that’s what I like to do when I go to shows.

There are some bonus activities like 3D body scanning, virtual draping and some cool interactive exhibits by students from Pratt Institute. You can sign up for tours, receptions, workshops, panel discussions and movies here. It’s all part of the Cloud Couture experience. RSVP quickly for the events you are interested in, because having this many wearable artists in a public area is so rare, that it’s going to be slammed. Besides the fun, you’ll get to learn a bit more about BF+DA–an unusual space that offers classes on anything from knitted apparel to negotiating with manufacturers. If you ever want to be a fashion entrepreneur, this is your little heaven.

Speaking of fashion, do you know about our Conductive Stretch Fabric? If you like to sew, you might want to create your own soft sensors using this cotton, silver, spandex jersey. It’s stretch-electric, so make something and send us a pic. Your next runway piece may have game buttons.
