Panel: Making Fashion Tech work from Research to Pop Culture
Pop-culture, Technologies and Wearables: Viktoria Modesta and Anouk Wipprecht are pushing the limits of Fashion
Viktoria Modesta is an independent bionic multimedia artist, creative director, DJ and supporter of future innovations. Her work continues the theme of exploring modern identity through performance, fashion, avant-garde visuals, technology and science. Her latest work continues to build on her vision – in 2019 she art directed and starred as the “Bionic Showgirl” at the legendary Parisian cabaret Crazy Horse, a residency spanning 31 sold-out shows. Her work bridges music, body art, sculptural tech-fashion and an otherworldly narrative first executed in the viral hit video “Prototype” that introduced her as the ‘world’s first bionic pop artist.
Anouk Wipprecht is a Dutch FashionTech Designer, Director, Innovator and Public Speaker. She is working in the field of wearable robotics with a focus on behavioural aspects of the interactions of body-based electronic design. Partnering up with companies such as American multinational technology company Intel, software producer Autodesk, internet giants Google and Microsoft, Austrian jewellery producer Swarovski, Montreal based entertainment company Cirque Du Soleil, and leading 3D printing innovators amongst others – she researches and develops how our future wardrobe would look as we continue to embed technology into what we wear.
