Back in August we announced the news that we’re partnering with BDYHAXCON to produce a fashion tech catwalk show for their upcoming conference in Austin. We know we’ve kept you in the dark for a while, so here’s some exciting news surrounding the show.
The BDYHAX Fashion Show will kick off a weekend of bodyhacking, future tech, bionics, and transhumanism in Austin, TX on January 27th.
Put Together will open with a “Waiting for Earthquakes” performance by Moon Ribas, a cyborg who senses earthquakes worldwide with the assistance of an implant in her arm. Waiting for Earthquakes translates these earthquakes happening anywhere on the planet into dance. If there are no earthquakes, there is no dance.
Designers and technologists taking part in Put Together include Birce Ozkan, Teresa Lamb, Jingwen Zhu, Lina Wassong, Rachel Nhan, Sensoree and Vinaya, making for a unique combination of runway and display, as many of the pieces are too detailed for a traditional fashion show viewing.
Pieces showcased will feature tech including responsive-design, sensory augmentation, new reactive materials, emotion tracking and 3d printed garments. Several designers will be on site after the runway portion to discuss the technology behind the pieces and to show off any small details.
Music throughout the show will be performed live by Kiara Craft, who released “A Rumor About Love.” Kiara’s sultry voice, and soulful melodies are reminiscent of classic rhythm and blues, with a modern Pop vibe on top of Hip Hop-laced trap beats. Kiara’s wide array of musical influences (from Diana Ross to Aaliyah) make for a sound that is fresh, edgy, and distinctively “Kiara”.
We’re also thrilled to announce that our friends from Clausette magazine are coming on board as a media partner, keeping you on the loop with everything surrounding the show.
