If fashion is about looking forward, a collection of runway shows at this year’s alternative fashion week provided a glimpse into the future of wearable technology beyond smartwatches.

Fashion Art Toronto, playfully known as FAT, is an annual showcase of art-infused contemporary fashion. This year, the exhibition marked its 10th anniversary with a number of experimental designers who fused fashion and technology.

“The future of fashion is automation in terms of the means of production as well as 3D printing” say Nina Smart, who with Ashley Davies designs House of Etiquette. “We’re going to see technology that can scan a 3D picture of your body and produce custom pieces. We’ve already seen a 3D printed dress,” she says referencing the gown femme fatale Dita Von Teese wore to a party in New York in 2013.
