An evening to be inspired by your peers. This is an industry wide event for people involved in wearable technology.

Specifically we will be looking at the advance in eGarments, soft switches and the general infusion of circuits into textiles, for more than just aesthetic purposes, but to provide tangible benefits in user experience and performance. The line up is to include:

Dr Camille Baker (http://www.rca.ac.uk/more/staff/dr-camille-baker/) - A media artist/ curator/ researcher focused on soft circuits, DIY electronics for smart garments and haptic interfaces for performance and mobile media. With a research background focused on the intersection of fashion, performance and technology over the last 15 yrs, Dr Camille Baker is also a senior lecturer at Royal College of Art, and runs a popular networking group around the subject.

Brooke Roberts (http://brookeroberts.net/) - Brooke Roberts is an award-winning digital knitwear designer and consultant, who has over a decade of experience as a diagnostic radiographer within the NHS. She uses inspiration from scan images of the brain and sinuses to create knitwear using the latest digital knitting technology and yarns. Brooke recently gave a TED talk explaining how she combines radiography and knitwear design in her clothing range and launched the Brooke Roberts Super Women Campaign to promote her Spring Summer collection, modeled by leading women from the fields of Tech, Business, Media and Medicine, instead of using conventional models.
