Today, we have more access than ever to technology and science. Considerable progress and new discoveries are made every day, whether they have a large impact or not.
Some individuals have been passionate about both science and fashion enough to create unique pieces that appear out of the ordinary. A few brands such as Chemist Creations and Issey Miyake are using technology to create new materials, patterns and many more features that deliver unique and modern pieces of clothing.
The use of newly developed materials in outerwear such as Gore-Tex, more durable and flexible sole technology for sneakers etc… so many different technologies have been created to offer the most durable, innovative and beautiful clothes.

Some fashion houses have even gone to the extremes and are using more challenging resources such as 3D printing such as Iris Van Herpen. Her creations have been awarded multiple times for innovation and the pure beauty that are her pieces as they resemble more art pieces than practical fashion.
While most pieces remain concepts that are specifically designed for the runway and for exhibition, we should be seeing more wearable pieces in the future.
