[ISEA2014] Paper: Valérie Lamontagne – Open Wearables


This paper investigates the role of designer in the ‘opening’ of culture in fashion and technology. In particular it explores the convergence of ‘open practices’ in vanguard technologies and fabrication processes found in the history of Modernist fashion, as well as recent popular uses of technology, engineering, and more specifically wearables design practices.
