Technology in Fashion: How New Tools are Shaping the Industry

read 3 min

The fashion industry’s footprint is one of the most harmful in the whole world. Sustainable fashion isn’t just a cool trend. The industry, world, and society are in need of change. In this way, new and innovative ideas came to help us change this reality.

According to the World Economic Forum, fashion production makes up 10% of humanity’s carbon emissions. The industry also dries up water sources and pollutes rivers and streams. Also, clothing production has doubled since 2000. Furthermore, while people are buying more clothes, they only kept the clothes for half as long.

Technology in Fashion

Technology is a must in the digital era. From smart fabrics to 3D Printing, it has been changing the fashion industry at different levels and showing that scale the revolution in need. 

Both designers, engineers, and researchers in these areas, translate behavioral trends of years ahead, into clothing, accessories, equipment, and tools capable of facilitating our daily lives and the way we behave, interact, consume and produce fashion.

An example of this is wearables, such as watches, sneakers, and T-shirts, capable of monitoring sleep, heart rate, number of steps, and alerting us to emails, messages, and other notifications from modern life.

But technology in fashion doesn’t stop there. Applications, platforms, and data tools have been helping companies to organize themselves, understand where their flaws and gaps are. This allows brands, for example, to understand everything that happens in their production process in order to improve it in a more sustainable or, at least, eco-conscious way.

How’s Technology in Fashion Contributing to Sustainability?

Technology’s improvement has been offering the fashion industry alternatives to make it more sustainable. With new resources, equipment, platforms, apps, and all kind of tools, brands are finding that being eco-friendly and conscious is affordable and possible.

Thus, these new inventions have provided entrepreneurs and the fashion industry as a whole with a series of improvements. These advancements contribute not only to the company’s mode of production and financial aspects but mainly to our planet’s health.

  1. Waste reduction: Since many clothes nowadays are disposable, linked to waste during production, the amount of products discarded daily is exorbitant. With technologies, products can be made by demand really fast or fabric use is intelligently done;
  2. Transparency: Social Media is in the number one position with this one. Glad for it, brands are able to show their whole process of productions, who is involved with the products and how are they done. On the other hand, consumers get closer to brands, can learn more about them, and, in consequence, ask for information;
  3. Data Organization: This one can be considered the hidden secret key to process improvement. Tools and platforms, such as Dedagroup Stealth, helps brands to reunite and organize their data and processes in a single place.
