What does fashion lack? Microcontrollers!
With a background in Fashion Design (2000-2010), her interest lead towards com-
bining her fashion study with interaction design/user experience design. And as
she started with the integration of robotic parts in combination with Arduino's
during 2006, her interest grew towards "animating" her designs .
Microcontrollers are used to prototype before making customized circuit boards
to 'feed' the electronically -equipped dresses and instead of using ordinary
electronics like LED's, her projects are based on more 'uncontrolled' materials
like special e -foils, wearable smoke providers, and tube-systems consisting of
colored liquid. Curator of the TECHNOSENSUAL 'Where fashion meets Tech-
nology' exhibition that took place at MuseumsQuartier Wien the last 2,5
months, she will give an insight in what it takes to create 'Electronic Couture'
