With pieces including an 1860 afternoon dress dyed with synthetic pigments, a 3D tube designed by Pierre Cardin and an evening dress created by Thierry Mugler that brings together 80s-style cuts with sci-fi inspiration, the exhibition Fashion and Technology, on at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology until May 8, examines the relationship between glamour and innovation. These two spheres are closer than ever before in today’s world, where avant-garde materials are key assets.
