Until now, the barrier for entry for creating fashion technology has been high. A designer must possess not only traditional cut-and-sew skills, but also the knowhow for integrating computer components into clothing.
Then there’s the software piece. Assuming a designer wants their garment to perform (read: work), they’d need to know how to code, which is about as easy as learning a new language. And all this was just to create a single concept piece — never mind the challenges of scaling and bringing one’s product to market.
The first retrospective of Dior in the U.S. has landed at the Denver Art Museum — and though the exhibition is a continuation of the 70th-anniversary display that bowed in Paris in 2017, “Christian Dior, Couturier du Rêve,” the DAM show offers an entirely new look at the legacy of the house, and its relationship to the world, writes @leighen .

Norwegian musician Anna of the North (a.k.a. Anna Lotterud ) has had a rapid rise in the U.S., thanks to her song “Lovers” which was included in this summer’s Netflix hit “To All The Boys I’ve Loved Before.” Next up, a show at Terminal 5. “I’ve never actually done promo or anything in the U.S. before so it’ll be interesting to see,” she tells @leighen . “Because of the Internet I’ve always had American listeners but never been here [playing music].” 📸: @jilliansollazzo #wwdeye
