The impact of Emerging technologies for sustainability of NANO materials and Artificial Intelligence in the area of Fashion, Textiles and Design is explored in this paper. This century is an era of new technologies viz., Biotechnology, Nanotechnology, Artificial Intelligence. These emerging technologies have introduced the world an entirely new canvas of work and have contributed immensely in diverse fields such as clothing, war ware, novel materials and entirely a new line of biomaterials in textiles like, highly tensile, unique surface structure, self cleansing fabrics, dye ability, flame retardant fabrics, Ultra Violet protection, anti static, anti bacterial, soil resistance, wrinkle resistance, stain repellant, Antimicrobial, fire retardant, water repellent, durability 3-D technology, and bulletproof fabrics, etc. All these technologies have revolutionized the textile industry, which is basic component of fashion and design industry. In present times, indeed a new era in all these industries is going to be imparting a sustainable progress and development.
