Three future impacts of technology on the fashion industry
You may not associate the words fashion and technology, but these worlds are quickly beginning to merge. Everyone needs technology to get work done, and they want to look good while using it. As fashion blends with technology, several trends have started to emerge. Here are three of the biggest trends that blend technology with fashion.
- Fashionable smartwatches: The smartwatch has only been around for a couple of years, but soon most people will use these watches. Smartwatches monitor your health, let you check your texts and e-mails, and works as a watch. So far, the focus has been on making functional watches, but soon the industry will start producing more fashion forward smart watches. Smartwatches will be a way to show your personality. Look for smartwatches to become the new fashion trend.
- Google Glass: The idea seems like something out of science fiction. A headset that gives you information and lets you surf the web while you live through daily life. Currently, Google Glass is expensive, and some in the fashion industry find the eyewear unfashionable. Google will figure these issues out over time, and Google Glass will emerge as a new fashion trend.
- 3D-printers: 3D printers might seem irrelevant to fashion, but they will transform the industry. Imagine having the accessories you need instantly, no matter what the inventory levels are at the store. 3-D printers will allow designs to spread quickly. While 3-D printers are not big now, but they will change the future. Technology will have a profound impact on the fashion industry for years to come. Over time the true impact of technology on the fashion industry will come to light.
