Featuring in the Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival “Electronica” facilitated the merging of fashion design and technology to create a futuristic runway. Selected designers explored the possibilities of fashion in the near future when technology has been completely integrated into human’s existence. In collaboration with the IEEE Women In Engineering custom programs and circuitry were developed and tested to flicker and glow at precise moments to light up the runway space. Through this imagining of the future the audience was able to realise the ideas of what could be possible within the realms of technology and its continuous partnership with fashion design, and the way they are able to influence one another.
