On Wednesday 10th February, the Atelier Néerlandais and CLICKNL | Next Fashion presented Embracing Fashion&Technology: a forum for fashion, innovation and insight. We explored the potentials of advanced materials, wearable technologies and future manufacturing, while considering surveillance and privacy issues, the implications for health and well-being and how wearables will radically change our bodies and our lives.
