Fashion and technology isn’t about the technology at all. It is about sharing, augmenting, and expressing who we are as human beings. Technology is a tool, albeit sometimes a powerful tool, but it is not a replacement for what we desire to express about ourselves.
So when Diane Von Furstenberg put Google Glasses on her team and models this year, this was something I had to see. I’ll be the first to admit, I was skeptical seeing Google Glass on the runway. The glasses look frumpy and cold. But, a look past the ugly frames of technology and you can find inspiration. Watch above.
”When I was younger, I didn’t know what I wanted to do, except the woman I wanted to be. I wanted to be on the go, and to be able to pay my own bills and I so much wanted to be independent. My goal in life is to tell every girl, every woman, that they can be the woman they want to be” – Diana Von Furstenberg.
