As part of Japan’s Fashion Week, fashion designer Emiko Miki fused high tech with high fashion by sending Japanese models down the catwalk adorning electronic gadgets such as a “charcoal gray kimono-style dress, patterned with colorful dragons, twinned with a slim, futuristic backpack fitted with a TV screen that beamed psychedelic images.”

Miki stated:
