I had the honor of attending the opening of #techstyle at the Museum of Fine Arts Boston last month (yes I'm super late posting this). I love fashion as a way of expression but I'm always curious about those who are pushing the boundaries of fashion and the way we interact with what we wear. I had not seen much tech infused fashion before so I was truly excited to see visually what can happen when you mix it up. Today, designers are using technology during the designing process but also as a way to create with the use of 3D printers, digitally printed fabrics and laser cutting. These are some of my favorites from the night. You can catch the exhibit in Boston until July 10th and I highly recommend a visit!

Manish Arora created this stunning bodice using laser cut technology and traditional intricate Indian craft techniques, combining old and new. Check out his collection on his website, so gorgeous!

Ying Gao kinetic reactive garment that uses electronic sensors and dressmaker pins to create organic like movement.
Cute Circuit designed this interactive dress that you can actually tweet! Cool idea but I do not want my clothing also hooked up to the internet. I would probably get technology anxiety wearing this hehe!
If you don't know some of these fab ladies below go check them out! It was fun to be among others that enjoyed fashion as much as I do! Left to right. Kelly Rego, Samantha Ramage of A Glimpse of Glamour, Lei Ann of Lei Ann of Lei Ann Off Duty, Me!, and Cassandra Knight of Castanet.
Samantha is the pretty lady that invited me and she runs the fabulous blog A Glimpse of Glamour. She definitely won best look of the night in my eyes <3 but I do have a soft spot for reds, pinks and roses!
If you missed it, I share some of the details of my outfit here <3 I did not have much technology infused clothing in my closet so I just did my thing but channeled the bold and daring queen of tech style Bjork.
Thanks for stopping by as always!
