Smart dressers: Technology flourishes in wearable fashion designs
Arizona State University’s newly established fashion program is already breaking into the innovation mode through creative partnerships pairing students in various disciplines. One in particular involves a collaborative fashion technology class project that tapped the talents of Fulton Schools students. Class member Jenna Forrey, a human systems engineering student, and computer science student Abhik Chowdhury are among those who joined fashion program students in delving into designs for clothing featuring wearable technology inspired by science and engineering. Forrey’s and Chowdhury’s contributions are noted in an earlier article, Moving the needle on fashion education, ASU NOW, March 28.
