Usually we do book reviews but today we are ahead of time and bring a book preview. Reading the description of Sabine Seymour’s upcoming book – ‘Fashionable Technology: The Intersection of Design, Fashion, Science and Technology’ I went straight ahead for a pre-order.
Sabine Seymour offers in her book an up-to-date look on the interplay between electronic textiles, technology, fashion, design and science.
This book offers a compact survey of the theory involved and an explanation of the role technology plays in fabrics or articles of clothing.
Practical applications will be explained in detail and numerous illustrations serve as clarification. Over 50 well-known designers, research institutes, companies and artists, among them Philips, Burton, MIT Media Lab, XS Labs, New York University, Hussein Chalayan, Cute Circuit or International Fashion Machines are introduced by means of their latest, often still unpublished, project, and a survey of their work to date.
