THE RISE OF WEARABLE TECHNOLOGY

It was back in 2014 when I laughed at the wearable technology designs The Apprentice candidates came up with. I mean, an iPhone charger hidden in the lining of your jacket for portable charging without carrying around a big battery pack...well actually that is quite handy to be honest. I guess it was the big bold solar panels they stuck on to the shoulders that put me off - but they actually had a point and with the wearable textile industry moving forward at an alarming rate, tech and fashion are going to be the next big hit on the global catwalks.
