Tue, Jun 20 - Tue, Jun 20  2023

On Tuesday, June 20, 2023, 6:30-7:30 pm, fashion tech designer Anouk Wipprecht will present Robot Couture as part of the Hyphen Hub Salon Series 2023. She will showcase garments that fuse cutting-edge style with bespoke robotics. RSVP is needed via asher@hyphenhub.org.

Dutch FashionTech designer Anouk Wipprecht is the creator of an impressive body of high-tech couture, with signature dresses that sense and respond to their wearer and the surrounding social environment. Her work is aesthetically powerful enough to be used in events and commercials that have been seen by millions, and technically sophisticated enough to be featured in hardcore engineering publications and conferences. Most recently, her hostess dresses have been enhancing the experience of dining patrons at Journey NYC in the Flatiron district. At the event organized by Hyphen Hub she will be presenting a number of her dresses, some of which will be modeled live, including a fully-functional robotic cocktail-dispenser dress. Anouk is accompanied by IEEE Spectrum editor, occasional technology historian, and sci-fi critic and futurist Stephen Cass. Cass will talk about the rich legacy of the intersection between art and technology, and how NYC area artists and engineers have played a central role in that story to the present day. Together Wipprecht and Cass will then lead a conversation about the art of infusing clothes with computation, the physical and psychological intimacy of wearable technologies, and the future of FashionTech.
