When technology and fashion merge, the results are often eye-catching, occasionally provoking and sometimes totally mental. For every tacky LED-embedded jacket there's a transforming dress that completely blows your mind. Such high-tech fashion is a regular occurrence at Eyebeam Art & Technology Center in New York City, which recently invited designers to create some upgraded wearables we've never seen before.
They succeeded. In our exclusive look at the Eyebeam show above, get bombarded with inflatable dresses, light-up underwear and mood shoes (!) designed by students. One of them is even the creation of a Project Runway contestant. Fierce.
