2017 CES Las Vegas
You Are What You Wear, So Make it Tech
Our very first high tech fashion show featured a dress that inflated itself from a mini skirt to an evening gown using a small hair dryer tucked in the waistband of the dress as its “tech component”. We’ve come a long way, baby. Today our FashionWare Show at CES delights attendees with a look at the hottest high tech wearables. Hosted by Project Runway’s Nick Verreos, the show features tech-forward attire and accessories for everyone from the business exec to the bling lover, the sports devotee to the mobile-centric family. This year you’ll see the latest from head-ware to foot-ware, from new fabrics to new chipsets, from wearable payment systems, to displaying your emotions on your sleeve. FashionWare Show takes place on the main stage of the Living in Digital Times Pavilion at the Sands Convention Center.
