Futuristic Fashion: Exploring the Intersection of Fashion and Technology

Step into the world of tomorrow in which fashion and technology merge seamlessly. This course will highlight the pioneers of avant-garde fashion, such as Hussein Chalayan, Alexander McQueen, and Rei Kawakubo, and explore the forefront of the latest wearable technology to date—from 3D printing to nanotextiles to virtual reality. We will screen the most futuristic fashions ever caught on film and unearth memorable trend forecasts for the future. The class will include guest lectures from world-renowned fashion innovators, museum field trips, and hands-on workshop sessions designed to stimulate your creativity. By sketching and collaging, you will design and present a five-piece collection that pushes fashion forward. Each week, get an insider’s view into the fashion world from Heidi Lee, a recent recipient of The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute Award.
