As we were wrapping up biomimicry this week, a fashion show caught my eye. Designer Hussein Chalayan created apparel that dissolves in water. This technique reminded me of the concept that nature fits to form.
We also began discussing empathic design, the idea of considering the user experience during the design process. After being introduced to this topic, I was interested in seeing this applied in real life. Generation X is known for being highly nostalgic; we were born right when a huge technological shift was beginning. Because of this, 90s fashion trends have regained popularity in a big way; chokers, flannel shirts, crop tops, and high waisted jeans are ubiquitous in 2015.
