Keynote Speaker: Meet Anouk Wipprecht, Dutch FashionTech Designer, Roboticist, Technologist, Innovator, Prototyper, Tinkerer, & Educator (Girls+Tech). Designer, Engineer and Innovator working in the emerging field of "FashionTech" - a rare combination of fashion design combined with engineering, robotics, science and interaction/user experience design 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, Swarovski, Dremel, Disney, TED, Google, Microsoft, Cirque Du Soleil, Audi, and 3D printing companies Materialise + Shapeways amongst others, she researches how our future would look as we continue to embed technology into what we wear.
