Abstract

Fashion tech is an interdisciplinary field that merges traditional fashion and textiles with modern electronics, software, and other technologies. In this book, we consider fashion tech to mean interactive garments or accessories that incorporate electronic components, or that were created using digital fabrication technologies like 3D printing. Technologies like these have only recently become available at the consumer level because of advances in the production of electronics that have lowered the cost of computers, sensors, and light-up components that can be embedded into everyday objects. This chapter introduces fashion tech and talks about how you can use this book to get started as a practitioner in this new field.
