Download & Review this podcast on iTunes or Stitcher Radio
I have always been very interested in the future of Wearable Tech and its applications beyond health tracking. The release of the Apple Watch was a bit of a game changer last year but since, no other groundbreaking technology has hit the market by storm. As technology becomes more and more accessible and crowdfunding more attainable, why is it that Wearable Technology has had such a slow start?
In this podcast episode, I wanted to reflect on the opportunities in this burgeoning field. I invited Claire Duke-Woolley, a Fashion Tech Analyst at Beecham Research to discuss what the future holds. Claire has over ten years of experience working in the textile and fashion industries for brands like Missoni, Kenzo, Liberty of London. She joined Beecham Research in the hopes to foster more collaborations between tech and fashion to aid market development.
