This Outfit is Hacked Swag #WearableWednesday

ShapPose

This ensemble may look like something from a club in LA, but it’s actually CES swag reconfigured by designer, Julia Shapiro. Julia was commissioned by CES to create a fashion in 24 hours that would represent the swag from the show. The finished piece includes swatches from tote bags, packs, lanyards and anything else that was available. Check out the hotel floor and see if you can match the pieces.

Julia also created a b-ball cap to share even more swag tidbits. You can definitely see some stickers, and I believe the Batman fabric may be some sort of cleaning cloth. It just goes to show you how much stuff is given out at these events. Consumption is actually a running theme in Julia’s work, and she purposely uses found objects and other popular pop culture items to draw attention to the problem.

Of course, a tech fashion needs a circuit, so Julia used MbientLab’s MetaWear and some NeoPixels to add a glow to the bustier. When you are working under tight deadlines, sometimes stitching is not the way to go. Thin wire carefully glued in place allowed the outfit to be completed in time for the runway. It’s quite the color splash once the outer material is added on.

To see more of Julia’s inventive art fashion, check out her line J SHAP. Since NY Fashion Week is upon us, I would definitely keep a look out for a sudden fashion disruption on the street.  Also, if you want to be set for a fashion hackathon, you should check out our GEMMA Starter Pack. GEMMA is a tiny microcontroller that has enough power to light up NeoPixels. So, you can get some bling in your bam with a few stitches or wires. Start recycling and make some fab fashion.
