What Does Fashion Lack? Microcontrollers, Says Fashion Designer Anouk Wipprecht   Leave a comment


Dutch fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht – who mixes high fashion with microprocessors and fiberoptic fabrics, is scheduled to present “Robotic Fashion and Intimate Interfaces” on Saturday May 17 at 11:30 AM on the Center Stage at Maker Faire Bay Area.

Anouk made the microprocessor-controlled fibre optic and LED costumes for the Black Eyed Peas for the Super Bowl XLV half time show.

I met Anouk at a Crash Space meeting in 2011 – she is fascinating!
