"Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." -Coco Chanel.
Yes, fashion is not in the runway but in the street. Fashion is not in the dresses but in every minute of our life. Fashion exists in our conversations. Fashion, to me, is in my smartphone. And I believe many people are like me.
First thing in the morning, check weather on the app. Next, check emails (maybe like a post on Facebook first). And the non-stop messages from friends, co-workers, and families test our multitask skills. In addition to those routine activities on our phones, we may also log on few other apps based on our lifestyle.
What is happening in our life, the fashion we have been living in, is technology.
We embrace technology because it makes our life easier and happier. For example, I love any wearable devices that remind me to exercise and to be healthier. I have been waiting for self-driving cars ready on the road because I am lazy of driving. I want to build an AI personal wardrobe assistant because I would like to be looking good 24/7.
Technology is the new fashion. In this fashion, we define our beauty statements.
