Introduction

Interest in design for wearables is in part driven by technology’s ongoing shifts towards social awareness, aesthetic viability and ultimately fashionability. The unit begins with the launch of a brief that provides for the creation of an interactive interface in the fashion industry, through the use of sensors to implement the user experience. Students will be guided by an interaction designer and will be supported with theoretical lessons and interventions aimed at learning the principles of interaction design.
