My thesis aims to address the problems facing the wearable technology industry and increase awareness of this industry with respect to female consumers. I combined two frameworks for my research, Lamb and Kallal’s model for designing a product that assesses user needs and wants based on three primary considerations, function, expression and aesthetics (FEA), and Adam and Galinsky’s “enclothed cognition” model, which involves the co-occurrence of two independent factors, the symbolic meaning of the clothes and the physical experience of wearing them. I created two garments, using and incorporating technology, based on these frameworks. For my Capstone Project I designed and created a 3D printed flexible crop top using FilaFlex plastic and the Hyrel 30M printer and a Shape Shifting skirt incorporating shape memory alloys (SMA).The crop top has been designed based on studies that researchers have conducted evaluating what shapes flatter women more and make them feel more confident with their body. Moreover, I designed my own 3D textile design featuring organic elements of nature to show how wearable technology does not have to be something cold and techky but something natural and warm. FilaFlex has assisted me by creating a fabric-like feeling to the shirt and allowing the wearer to be feel comfortable while wearing due to its flexibility and durability.The black paneled skirt changes shapes everytime the room temperature changes from 15C to 40C. The shape memory alloys curl up everytime the room heats up and create a short skirt whereas when its cold the wires move the skirt to an ankle length.
