Join us for a Computational Fashion double event!

Fashion and Wearable Tech Demo Night (5 - 9pm)
Fashion and the Body panel (6:30 - 8pm)

As part of the Computational Fashion initiative, Eyebeam is hosting a panel and demo night exploring emerging opportunities in fashion and wearable technology. The panel, "Fashion and the Body", will feature a selection of emerging fashion thought leaders and makers, including FIT curator Ariele Elia, designer Titania Inglis, and Computational Fashion Fellow Keren Oxman in a spirited discussion moderated by Sabine Seymour. The conversation will cover possibilities and obstacles for fashion designers looking to incorporate technology in their work, as well as consideration for how/if wearable tech can actually be fashionable.

The panel at 6:30, takes place in conjunction with a Fashion and Wearable Tech Demo Night beginning at 5pm. Attendees will get a chance to talk one-on-one with designers and entrepreneurs and check out compelling products at the intersection of wearable technology, garments, jewelry, and accessories.
