AN INTRODUCTION TO MODULAR WEARABLES
BY BRIT WACHER
Brit Wacher, a Canadian based fashion designer, currently operating out of Toronto is creating a project based around modular garments with technical application. Garments that are made to transform. The idea is that you have a base piece and other attachments are available to transform the garment. For example: sleeves, sleeve extensions, length extenders, various collar style add-ons. The technical application that we have chosen for this body of work is using glass tube woven into textile and when connected to power source and LED, lights up (fiber-optics).
This modular and technical concept is accompanied with the utilization of sustainable, eco, and recycled options. The recycled elements we have used for this project fall into category of “e-waste” (used electronic components, such as wires, cords, communicative devices, etc) into details (trims, tapes, etc) with one concept garment that is constructed completely of computer circuit boards.
