Diana Eng is the rare fashion designer who is as comfortable working with conductive wire and electrical circuits as she is with velvet and silk chiffon. Her many creations include a dress with flowers that bloom, garments that change shape, and a purse that blogs. She was a contestant on Project Runway in its second season, won the Yahoo Open Hack Day (where creative geeks come together to build cool stuff) with two others, was an artist in residence at the Eyebeam Art and Technology Center in New York, authored a book on tech fashion, and has helped Victoria's Secret with R&D.

I wonder how long it will be before we see technologically whimsical fashions (such as hit Diana Eng’s designs) hit the streets and not just the runways.
