Anouk Wipprecht


Dutch tech-minded fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht wants to make fashion ahead of her time, combining the latest in science and technology to make fashion an experience that transcends mere appearances. She wants her garments to facilitate and augment the interactions we have with ourselves and our surroundings.

Her Spider Dress is a perfect example of this aesthetic, where sensors and moveable arms on the dress help to create a more defined boundary of personal space while employing a fierce style. Partnering up with companies such as Intel, AutoDesk, Google, Microsoft, Cirque Du Soleil, Audi, and recently - Swarovski, she researches how our future would look as we continue to embed technology into what we wear.

Fashion becomes interactive and technology has never before been as close to the skin – what kind of possibilities does this open up?

Anouk Wipprecht is a FashionTech designer who works interdisciplinary in search for intelligent systems that interact with the body as the environment of the wearer. Anouk uses machine learning and biomimicry coupled to sensors and animatronics. Her designs move, breath, and react to the world around them.

She is passionately interested in new ways we can interface — and builds micro-controlled garments to provoke her generation.
