Design the next mashup of clothing and technology!

Designers are continually adding new technology to our clothing to make our lives easier or more exciting. You can design your own creative mashup of clothing and technology. Download and print our template to create a Mood Board, a tool used by designers to explore new ideas.

Instructions:

  1. Think about what you want your design to do and look like. Using materials around the house, paper, pencils, crayons, magazines to build your story.
  2. To transform your clothes, you will need to think of them in a new way. Inspiration for wearable technology can come from anywhere. What would your shirt be like if it was inspired by a roller coaster? What shape would your pants take if they were based on trees?
  3. Use old magazines to find images, words and stories that spark your imagination.
