It’s always fun to scroll through Kickstarter to see new interesting products people are creating, and seeing the interest in them by viewing the number of pledges committed. Crowdsourcing pledge platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo are ripe with new innovations and ideas that expand the imagination.
One recent innovation that caught my eye was this color-changing skirt by Chamelyo.
The skirt can be transformed into another style/color in a blink of an eye and a flick of the wrist. It’s a combination of traditional origami and more modern design techniques.
There has been much hype with the merge of fashion and tech- and few have really nailed it down. Much energy has been spent in embedding tech into our apparel from our watches to our socks to our bras, with many companies slapping on NFC, Bluetooth, or other sensors and calling it innovative smart clothing.
So it’s always refreshing to see a type of innovation that is actually tech-free and focused more on the design approach itself. This whimsical skirt feeds into the desire of the modern fashionista for new, fast looks, and I am excited to see what’s next in their playful line of color-changing products.
