Create a Music Trench Coat for graduation press show at University of The Arts London. Develop an app to control the music through iPhone

by Valeryia Lubchonak in London, England, United Kingdom

My name is Valeryia Lubchonak, I am a fashion design student at UAL. During my final project I am focusing on new technology in fashion. I have created a tech-advanced collection which will be shown on a press show for graduating students. 

In this collection I have demonstrated different possibilities of how we can make our clothing to "work for us". I am introducing clothing with features which helps us in everyday life. 

By now, I have completed all creative part: design, patterns, choice of materials, cut out fabric pieces.

The engineering part was supported by the innovative fabrics company Conductive Transfers: artwork for sensors, identify best location/placement for the sensors, print stretchable functional circuit.

Now, to make the Trench Coat work, I need to develop the software app.

The app will enable the Music Trench Coat to connect to the iPhone through a NFC chip. Once the Trench Coat and iPhone are connected, the sleeve on the Trench Coat will start function as the screen of an iPhone and will enable to make multiple tasks, which no longer require to take the iPhone from the pocket as often as we do it now.

I am looking for a funding to develop the app, the money will be needed to pay for a software engineer who will analyse the project and create an App specially for the Music Trench Coat.

Thank you for your attention, I will be more than happy for any help on my project. for some funding partners there will be a possibility to attend the press fashion show and see the Music Trench Coat in action.

Future of Fashion is on the Technology
