Fashion in terms of apparel and branded items are obviously the most commercial wearable products. Anything a person puts on their body has to do more than function; it also has to conform to their personal and societal representation of themselves. The fashion industry and technology industry work on different timetables and have different trending mechanisms. The people that work in these industries use different terminology, and have very different training and interests. When and how will we see true technology integration in fashion, in clothing, in textiles? Will we see tech couture by major fashion houses?
