Wearables workshop in London
The fourth teaching and learning activity was held in November at the London College of Fashion. 15 students from the partner universities met at the Digital Learning Lab to learn about wearable technologies.
The industrial challenge style hackathon investigated concepts such as touch technology for social connection, creative and connected business models and brand experience, and lastly the methods of bonding, laminating and layering to add tech to textiles.
Besides LCF's own experts in the field with Douglas Atkinson leading the workshop, industry representatives Pauline van Dongen, Kiren Passi and Fredrik Timour were mentoring the students.
