Swedish Neue Labs go to NYC to teach students about fashion tech

Fun news dropped in this Friday. Swedish fashion tech company Neue Labs is holding an exclusive fashion course at Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City this spring. During this course seven students at FIT will get to study how tech and fashion can merge. Over three months the students will develop at least three advanced fashion tech products, focusing on how tech can be implemented in clothing and add more levels of communication to digital services and business models.
Joining Neue in NYC are their partners Swedish Fashion Council and brands Ann-Sofie Back and POC. Should be really interesting to see what this results in over the next couple of months.
Meanwhile, innovative fashion tech pioneer Hussein Chalayan is visiting Sweden and Textilhögskolan in Borås for an inspirational lecture on Thursday. His work was actually my first introduction to fashion tech back in 2008, so naturally I’m planning to be there.  Stay tuned for reports!
