A Wearable Tech Fashion Show
Co-Presented with the Gladstone Hotel
Friday May 13th, 7pm
In the Ballroom at the Gladstone Hotel (1214 Queen St. W.)
The only way to withstand the future is to be timeless. Although wearable technology is often imagined as electronic and digital, innovations in textiles and garment construction promise to be far more useful and sustainable in these volatile times. Future Proof is an experimental fashion show that features collaborations between teams of artists, designers and technologists investigating this delicate balance between progress and practicality. Using diverse materials and methods of construction, each set of looks explores a different facet of wearable tech that begs the increasingly important question: How can fashion be revolutionary yet everlasting?
