„Where Fashion Meets Technology“ (EN)

Anouk Wipprecht, Hi-Tech Fashion Designer and Innovator



Fashion becomes interactive and technology has never before been as close to the skin – what kind of possibilities does this open up? Anouk Wipprecht is a FashionTech designer who works interdisciplinary in search for intelligent systems that interact with the body as the environment of the wearer. Wipprecht uses machine learning and biomimicry coupled to sensors and animatronics. Her designs move, breath, and react to the world around them. She is interested in new ways we can interface — and builds micro-controlled garments to provoke her generation. In her talk, Anouk will tell a bit more about her current projects and research.


Anouk Wipprecht, Hi-Tech Fashion Designer and Innovator

Dutch FashionTech designer Anouk Wipprecht creates designs ahead of her time; combining the latest in science and technology to make fashion an experience that transcends mere appearances. She wants her garments to facilitate and augment the interactions we have with ourselves and our surroundings. Her Spider Dress is a perfect example of this aesthetic, where sensors and moveable arms on the dress help to create a more defined boundary of personal space while employing a fierce style. Partnering up with companies such as Intel, AutoDesk, Google, Arduino, Microsoft, Samsung, Adobe, Adidas, Cirque Du Soleil, Audi, Disney, Swarovski, and 3D printing company Shapeways she researches how our future would look as we continue to embed technology into what we wear, and more importantly – how this will change our perspective on how we will interface with technology.

Her work has been exhibited internationally at multiple International Fashion Weeks, during CES and Art Basel Miami, Premiere Vision Paris, ARS Electronica Festival, IAA, has been featured in magazines like WIRED, Vogue, Elle, IEEE Spectrum, and has been broadcasted and interviewed on tv show stations CNN, Discovery Channel, Red Bull TV and NFL. She curated two successful exhibitions; ‘Technosensual – Where Fashion Meets Technology’ at MuseumsQuartier Vienna in 2012, and ‘Robotic Couture’ at Tetem Netherlands in 2017; and is part of the TED family.
