Clothes that respond to the environment, are ingeniously constructed from recycled materials, and garments that come off a 3-D printer ready to wear all of these innovations are poised to have a profound impact on the future of the fashion industry. Designers have embraced these innovations and “#techstyle” explores how the synergy between fashion and technology is not only changing the way designers design, but also the way people interact with their clothing.

The exhibition draws on the MFA’s collection of contemporary fashion and accessories, and features key pieces from innovators in the field including a digitally-printed dress from Alexander McQueen’s Plato’s Atlantis collection (Spring/Summer 2010/2011) and Iris van Herpen’s 3-D printed dress (2013) produced in collaboration with MIT designer and assistant professor Neri Oxman. Visitors experience the cutting edge of hi-tech fashion with special commissions created by CuteCircuit, Hussein Chalayan, Kate Goldsworthy, and Somerville-based Nervous System

The introductory section of “#techstyle” features iconic works by four established – designers from left to right, Hussein Chalayan, Alexander McQueen, Issey Miyake, and Rei Kawakubo for Comme des Garçons – who have long been at the forefront of integrating technology with fashion. The Performance section of the exhibition features clothing that interacts with the wearer in conceptual and practical ways – from dresses that move independent of the wearer through electronics, to leather capes that change with a spectrum of colors in response to light, heat, and wind.
