Smart Fabric and Design: Creating Fashion Collections for Modern Women
Fashion designer Natalia Allen leverages smart textiles and innovative design processes to create collections for an ever-growing market of wealthy consumers
Prize-winning fashion designer Natalia Allen, named as one of Fast Company’s 100 Most Creative, has become known for pioneering wearable technology, but not in ways the retail or technology industries may think. The Manhattan-based designer and her clothing company gained notoriety for its smart textiles manufacturing process, a growing category of wearable technology when it comes to fashion.
Allen, who has worked with global brands like Calvin Klein, Donna Karan and Dupont, has done everything from designing proprietary dye processes to creating technical outerwear that utilizes smart textiles and stitchless sewing techniques.
