This exhibition explores how tech has changed fashion

Coming to London’s Fashion Space Gallery, #DigitalDisturbances will examine the influence of digital tools on fashion

Over the last twenty years, digital technology has radically changed the fashion industry – that much is obvious. It's transformed the way fashion is produced and consumed, the way it’s designed and represented. Last week a new app was launched that allows clients to book models with one Tinder-like swipe of an iPhone screen. 

A new exhibition coming to Fashion Space Gallery at London College of Fashion will examine the influence that technology has had on fashion. Opening in September, #DigitalDisturbances will bring together seven designers and creative teams whose work explores the interaction between the digital and the material.

The line-up includes Russian menswear designer Tigran Avetisyan and artist Bart Hess (who covered Lady Gaga in slime for her “Born This Way” music video), as well as ANREALAGE, Flora Miranda, POSTmatter, Simone C. Niquille and Alexander Porter, and Texturall. Expect interactive film installations, motion sensor fabric and optical illusions.

#DigitalDisturbances will be arriving in the capital along with a host of other fashion exhibitions, including one charting the history of the Chanel, from the house’s Coco Chanel origins to its Karl Lagerfeld designed present day.

#DigitalDisturbances will be open September 11-December 12 2015. Head to Fashion Space Gallery’s website for more information.
