Fashion is fuel for innovation

About this film: This short film from TED@Tommy explores fashion as a vehicle for innovation. From the Industrial Revolution to WWII to the hippie movement, the culture of fashion has always blended the cutting edge of self-expression with the latest innovations in technology. Today, fashion is no different, weaving VR, AR, and leading sustainable technologies into the very fabric of contemporary clothing, and addressing larger global issues to design the future we want to live in.
