(wearable) technology meets (fashion) design: implications and applications

Recent developments in electronics, software programming and service design are shaking the current notions of what a textile is. Societal trends like a renewed interest in crafts, the need for a sustainable mass production system and the emergence of personalization are reshaping the way the fashion system works. By means of a series of conceptual garments and research exemplars carried out at the Wearable Senses Lab at Eindhoven University of Technology, this talk illustrates the challenges and the space of opportunities emerging where (wearable) tech meets (fashion) design.

During this week you are called to start working on your final project proposal that you will be developing from January to March. You will present your proposal with the format of your a presentation (ppt,video,) for 5ยด .


  • Relation between craftsmanship, mass production, customization and services

  • Ultra-personalised product service systems (UPPSS): ultra-personalized fashion and connected health

  • Personalization at a product level: digital material production

  • Personalization at a systems level: generative design and fit

  • Personalization at a service level: end user programing

  • Case study 1: BB.Suit 0.2

  • Case study 2: Kimbow

  • Case study 3: Phototrope


  • Document the concept, sketches, references also to artistic and scientific publications
  • Create an Ultra-personalised product service systems (UPPSS) for your final project
  • Map the potential stakeholders
  • Explore personalisation at all the different levels
  • EXTRA POINT : Interview your potential users/ target group about your concept, quantify results

How will it be evaluated#

  • References and Concept development
  • Design: Understand how to develop a concept and service model
  • Documentation: Stakeholders analysis, Service description, Personalisation options
  • Final outcome: The product/service/experience is defined and ready to be presented to potential stakeholders
  • Originality - Aesthetics: Has the proposal been thought through and elaborated-
