WHO

 

Interlaced is an organization dedicated to inspire, educate and communicate the developments around the next wave of fashion, creating a platform for curious minds.

Our aim is to accelerate consumer adoption of wearable technology fashion, smart clothing and apparel.

Interlaced is built on the fact that in order to speed up innovation within fashion houses and technology companies in the area of wearable tech apparel, an increasing demand from the end-consumer needs to be apparent.

WHAT

  Through insightful events, industry reports, educational activities and news content, Interlaced bridges the gap between the industry, academia and the wider public by bringing them together and acting as a catalyst for consumer adoption of smart fashion. We believe that educating emerging talents and early adopters is key for the success of the future of fashion.

WHY

 

We are at an exciting stage of wearables that drives us to rethink our relationship with our technologies which impact our bodies, abilities and ways of expression.

Currently the industry draws most of the attention to ‘wearable as device’, leaving fiber science almost out of reach. For wearables to really take off, smart clothing will need to invade the worlds of ready-to-wear, haute couture, and street fashion. This means being known and popular among end-consumers.

Educating the wider public and the future talents in fashion, as well as highliting the pioneers in the field connects the dots in this ecosystem.
