Fashion and Technology

Garden Street: Lower Level

Fashion and technology have always been linked. Today, perhaps more than ever before, emerging technologies are steering fashion’s course and will define its future.  Join MFA curator, Lauren Whitley, for a look at the MFA Boston’s current exhibition #techstyle which features the cutting edge of fashion including dresses that you can tweet, clothes that respond to the environment, and fabrics cut and patterned by lasers. Ms. Whitley will consider how technology is impacting both the production and performance of clothing, as well as, social media’s role in disseminating fashion’s many messages.
