The 21st of October 2010, the E-Textile group chose 'transformational garments' as starting point for discussion. Where the topic can be interpreted very literally, in the sense of transforming the shape of a wearable piece, the discussion evolved swiftly towards the question how transformation affects our body and mind.

This spring, 'Intimacy Black' is designed by Anouk Wipprecht, Studio Roosegaarde and V2_Lab. The upgraded e-foil transforms from black to transparent. Anouk's design enables the wearer to engage in a wholly 'super-natural' experience with her own skin. The result is a futuristic gown which any stylish woman living in the 22nd century would want to wear to her party.

This will be followed by an introduction into soft circuits using conductive threads and fabrics.
