Music systems have evolved from the 20th century juke boxes to the 21st century IPods. These dramatic changes have led humanity to understand the relationship between fashion and technology. Generally, the advancement in technology is based on what people consider fashionable. Fashion designers are dedicated to creating compelling design through the use of technology. This ensures a superior standard in functionality and innovation. According to Anouk Wipprecht, a fashion designer states that technology can be likened to a playground or place where experiments are conducted. The more you are involved with the experiments, the more rewards you are likely to rip. Wipprecht is responsible for designing the self-painting dress, and drink-making dress,
Link Between Technology and Fashion
Many fashions improve through technology as a means for protection. For example, Terese Alstin and Ann Haupt established a device that one wears around their neck when cycling, also called the cyclist’s airbag. In case of an accident, an airbag emerges from the neckwear to shield a person’s head from severe impact. Another protection oriented fashion design is the frontline gloves introduced by Kevin Cannon and Ashwin Rajan. These devices help firefighters communicate valuable information to each other using hand gestures as cues for leaving a building, or to mean that all is well.
Clothes designers have also exploited the bond between fashion and design. For example, SegraSegra created t-shirts and jackets by recycling the tubes of bicycles, and Whiteside made a gown by recycling a radiator copper. Technology and fashion has also been used in creating energy. The fact that motion can be turned into electrical energy has led to the creation of clothing that captures this form of kinetic energy and uses it to provide power for mp3, watches, and other electrical gadgets. Soledad Martin is in the process of launching a brand of shoes that can enable one to charge their cell phone while running or walking.

Doe Deere was recently interviewed by Bustle for her take on the traditional beauty and fashion rules, which women seem to follow religiously. As the founder and CEO of her very own cosmetics line, Lime Crime cosmetics, Deere certainly knows a thing or two hundred about dismissing rigid standards and rules, especially when it comes to her personal expression through clothing and makeup. While the full article includes ten groundbreaking tips from Deere herself on traditional makeup and fashion rules to throw out, one of the most intriguing ones was that despite popular opinion to the contrary, mixing different prints and patterns on clothing items is definitely acceptable in creating a unique outfit. Deere implores readers to choose clothing items that reflect their personal sense of style and expression rather than avoiding wearing something awesome because of a silly rule that different patterns cannot be mixed in the same outfit. One of the hints Deere gives readers is that for a more aesthetically pleasing ensemble, it can be a good idea to mix patters that are within the same color family, such as pink and purple.
Deere has always had an entrepreneurial spirit and a passion for fashion. She definitely views it as a vehicle for self expression and as a way to brighten your day. This is part of the reason why she began designing her own clothing line and manufacturing it to be sold on eBay for fashion adventurers looking to make a real statement with their fashion choices. All of her designs are inspired by a love of fashion and expression of the authentic self, which Deere says she hates to see impinged upon by silly fashion rules seeking to limit self expression.
While Deere was creating and selling her own clothes, she realized that she could not really put her finger on any makeup lines that matched her unique sense of bold expression. This led her to create Lime Crime cosmetics, which she is proud to help keep ahead of current cosmetic trends and true to the most fun means of expression. This means that the cosmetics line features bold colors and unrestricted combinations of daring elements to pair together. Deere encourages all of her followers, whom she refers to as unicorns for the individualistic style and daring spirit, to choose clothing and makeup items that make them feel happy to wear them and embrace it.
