High-tech fashion by Anouk Wipprecht

Intimacy-Black_Anouk-WipprechtBelonging to the new generation of fashion-tech designer, Anouk Wipprecht understands very well how to make use of technology to re-invent fashion design. Fashion design, used to provoke, to challenging but also connecting to social values has always been at the forefront of fashion design.

Using technology like Anouk Wipprecht opens up almost unimaginable possibilities for fashion designer to push the boundaries of the interaction between our body, the environment and our social values.

Anouk who is still at the early stage of her career as Fashion-tech designer created exceptional Haute-Tech designs during her student years like the Cat-Bag or the self-painting Pseudomorph Dress.

Intimacy Black‘, her latest creation is using e-foil which transforms from black to transparent. Anouk’s design enables the wearer to engage in a wholly ‘super-natural’ experience with her own skin.


Anouk based the ‘Intimacy Black’ on Daan Roosegaarde ‘e-fashion’ work which acts like a second skin that transforms the body of the wearer into an interface.

The Intimacy dresses are made using wireless, interactive technologies and smart foils that become transparent when electrified. The distance between a spectator and the garment determines the garments’ level of transparency.

The team working on the Intimacy project consist of Daan Roosegaarde, Maartje Dijkstra, Anouk Wipprecht, V2_ Lab (Simon de Bakker, Stan Wannet, Piem Wirtz) and Studio Roosegaarde (Peter de Man, João Carneiro).
