Highlighting the intersection of fashion and technology over the past 250 years

Fashion and Technology, an exhibition running through May 8 2013 at the Museum at FIT (New York City) shows the impact of technology over the past 250 years to present day and poses the question as to what technology is while showing how it has changed culture.

This exhibition shows how culture was impacted by fashion, and, most importantly, is the occasion to see how the fashion industry was impacted with technologies. The introduction of materials such as petroleum, cellophane, PVC and neoprene helped designers to expand their creativity, while the manufacturing processes where revolutionnized with introduction of new equipments and technologies. The jacquard loom for example, allowed common people to have access to woven textiles (that were originally only available to the wealthy). The sewing machines, invented in 1790 by Thomas Saint, generalized mass clothes production as it improved the efficiency and productivity of the clothing industry.

The exhibition also features more recent garments and a great section of wearable tech pieces to show just what’s to come in the future.
