The photo above is hot off the press as I just got back from Bradley Quinn’s talk at OCAD on the Future of Fashion. LED lights woven into fabric and the Apple watch are just the tip of the iceberg. Quinn spoke about retails shops morphing into interactive branding spaces, bracelets that measure your emotions (think 21st century mood rings), and scannable fashion. Imagine seeing a cute dress on a stranger and being able to scan it with your phone to find out where it’s from… sounds a bit cool and creepy! An audience member raised a great point about the questionable ethics of some of the technologies. And while certain innovations have useful applications, for now I prefer my clothes smart tech free.

Technology seems to permeate our lives, but so does fashion. BlogTO posted last week that Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld will be designing the lobby of the new condo on Yonge south of Eglinton, at the former site of the (in)famous Art Shoppe. Does this mean Karl (and Choupette!) will be coming to Toronto for the grand opening?
