Mercedes-Benz pull out of New York Fashion Week

Mercedes-Benz pull out of New York Fashion Week | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
As previously reported on Buro 24/7, speculation that NYFW could be losing its title sponsor, Mercedes-Benz, hit the media mid-November last year. No one really thought there could be any truth to the rumours – after all, NYFW and the luxury car manufacturer have enjoyed half a decade together. But, rather shockingly, today the rumours have been confirmed: Mercedes-Benz have pulled out of New York Fashion Week, and the semiannual fashion week will no longer be known as Mercdes-Benz Fashion Week

"Dye sublimation (“dye sub” for short) refers to the process of using high heat to transfer dye onto a material, much like a giant iron-on transfer. Users are typically rewarded with bold, saturated prints, delivered in real time with quality, precision, and not a great deal of expense. (The F7170 comes in just under $20,000.) Call it “bespoke on a budget,”

Li Edelkoort publishes manifesto on why "fashion is obsolete"

Li Edelkoort publishes manifesto on why "fashion is obsolete" | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
Under Education, Edelkoort argues that students are being trained "to become catwalk designers, highly individual stars and divas, to be discovered by luxury brands."

"As a result the fashion world is still working in a 20th-century mode, celebrating the individual, elevating the it-people, developing the exception... in a society hungry for consensus and altruism," she writes. "This places fashion out of society and de facto makes it old-fashioned."
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

Few  in design will have the balls to honestly  discuss these issues as it means facing their individual role in the matter!  #Fashion #Stateoftheindustry #realitycheck #PFW

Y Combinator hires first black partner to recruit more minorities

Y Combinator hires first black partner to recruit more minorities | Fashion Technology Designers & Startups | Scoop.it
Michael Seibel is joining the incubator as a full-time partner to coach high-tech hopefuls.
Bonnie Sandy's insight:

@Ycombinator @mwseibel you can always engage existing #blackintech #urbantech groups on FB and Gplus. Meetup etc. or do a search SMH. I can never figure out why those with diversity mission post on media with diversity issues! If you want to reach potential black, LBGT, Hispanic or any another group there’s a hashtag and more than one community groups for that! I'm for teh cause so I'll share! 

 

Seriously I applaud the effort but we need to be real …   Somehow companies who refuse to step into black or diversity niches to bring their message of #diversity bothers me!  Even the many “black organizations”  can seldom be found within in the black communities until it’s time to pay for their conference…

FYI There are several arms of the Blacks in tech movement ... 
This is my cynic’s list …Yup not all #Blacksintech have the same MO… to find REAl talent you’ll need to go scouting.
The Mimic's those who try to fit black culture into Silicon.... 
The Urbanites those who try to simply add technology to the hood and stir ... 
The social maverick they swear by @Mashables and exist on black twitter, they follow the mandates of gurus and influencers, never test theories and seldom read beyond what's the latest trend. 
Then there are a few who can be found in hacker spaces, makerspaces, labs - the rebels...... you seldom see them. 
There are the old timers this is the second boon for them, but many still stick by the rules of " the good old days..." 
Finally are the community types... those who organize usually around tech in their passion. 
The fact is we sort of know each other and keep distant tabs on each as we nurture the vision of black tech businesses....

It’s not Crochet, knit or tatting but a Nervous system 3d printed bodice

"Unique to the Kinematics' design is a print without any parts that need to be clipped together or adjusted after 3D printing. The hinges are 3D printed into the bodice and designed in such a way that allows it to be 'folded' to fit into the printing space. As you may expect, the reality was not quite as straightforward as the theory, but the designers overcame the challenges.

Bonnie Sandy's insight:

It’s not Crochet, knit or tatting but a “Nervous system 3d printed” bodice – sometime in the future we will need to  find a simple word for “Nervous system 3d printed”
