Eyebeam resident Diana Eng will present the Fairytale Fashion Collection in a technology fashion show on Wednesday, February 24, 2010, 7PM at Eyebeam. Models will hit the runway at 8PM, while an orchestra of circuit bending DJ’s create music from hacked video game consoles. Seated front row will be celebrity scientists, designers, school children, and traditional celebrities. This event will showcase innovation in fashion through technology.

The Fairytale Fashion Collection uses technology to create magical clothing in real life. Electronics, mechanical engineering, and mathematics are used to create clothing with blooming flowers, changing colors and transforming shapes. Research and development for the Fairytale Fashion collection are shared online at FairytaleFashion.org as an educational tool that teaches about science, math, and technology through fashion. Fairytale Fashion was created with the support of Eyebeam Art and Technology Center.
