Some of the most exciting developments in fashion aren’t happening on the runway — they’re happening in the lab! Join us, in partnership with Fashion Week Brooklyn, as we feature a panel of innovators discussing the exciting future of fashion at the Brooklyn Public Library.
The panel will be moderated by Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman, founder of Interwoven Design Group, who combines her expertise in wearable technology and smart textiles with a passion for design.
At Haute Tech 3, fashion, law and technology converge as a panel of women entrepreneurs and thought leaders share their stories of innovation and invention in the world of fashion. Now in its third year, our annual fashion tech event will focus this year on innovative textiles, including real leather grown in a lab and smart fabrics that incorporate digital technology.
Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman, Adjunct Professor at the Pratt Institute, Founder & Principal of Interwoven Design Group, will be part of the panel.
Design and Technology Festival
ECHO Dubai is the first art, design and technology festival in the Middle East. The Festival will bring leaders in art, design, and technology to Dubai for the first time, offering unparalleled access to new trends, technology, processes, and innovations, as well as the opportunity to collaborate and transfer knowledge.
The 3-day Festival will include an expo showcasing immersive installations by local and international exhibitors, a conference to exchange knowledge and generate new ideas within the industry; workshops across a range of artistic and creative disciplines hosted by international experts; and a sound festival that combines leading musical talent with audio-visual technology, to offer a truly immersive experience.
Rebeccah Pailes-Friedman will be leading a workshop “Leading Expert In Designing For Wearable Technology Using Smart Textiles” and introducing her newest project Lumanit.
NYC Media Lab is a proven thought leader in two emerging media and technology areas: VR/AR and data science. In the past year, we’ve completed dozens of prototyping projects with our Member Companies to explore new potentials. Faculty and student representatives from NYU, Columbia University, Pratt Institute, The New School, The School of Visual Arts, CUNY and Cornell Tech will present and demo the cutting-edge projects, prototypes and startups they’ve developed with NYC Media Lab in the 2016-17 season.
Join the Remo Haptic team, graduates of the 2017 Cohort, demonstrate their latest technology advancements of their haptic sport training tool.
