While we were anxiously awaiting the debut of the iPhone 6 last night, Elie Tahari was making an iPhone announcement of his own. At his Spring Summer 2015 Presentation last night, one model walked the runway in a dress covered in iPhone 6 phones. If that’s not wearable tech, than we don’t know what is.
As she strutted down the runway in the technofabric mesh-material dress, all of the phones on it were livestreaming the show. And since the phones were attached to every area of the dress, it gave viewers a 360 degree view of the presentation. Imagine livestreaming a show, Instagramming, updating your status or tweeting from your dress. Sounds crazy, but maybe Elie Tahari is on to something. Will dresses put iPhone cases and handbags out of business? Only time will tell.
