Anouk Wipprecht is an internationally recognized fashion tech designer known for fusing couture fashion with robotics and artificial intelligence to create garments that move, breathe, and react to the environment around them. Anouk has produced innovative work in collaboration with some of the biggest fashion, technology, and entertainment companies, including Swarovski, Adidas, Intel, Audi, Disney, and Cirque du Soleil—to name a few.
In her second appearance on the Electric Runway podcast, Anouk shares what she has been working on since we last spoke, including a prosthetic leg for bionic pop artist Viktoria Modesta, as well as a playful medical wearable designed to help children with ADHD or autism. We find out how the landscape of design has changed since we last spoke, as well as how she’s thinking about fashion tech in 2019.
