New York Fashion Week, Recapped: Fashion & Technology Converge

As a fashion person who's fully vested in social media - both personally and professionally - I'm continually interested in how style and technology converge. Truth be told, I didn't see a lot of innovation within social or technology this New York Fashion Week (live streaming, live-tweeting and live-pinning are old news by now!), with the notable exception of DVF's runway debut of Google Glass.

In case you're not familiar (read: as tech-obsessed as the author), Google Glass are the eagerly-anticipated, augmented reality enhanced glass being developed by Google. As follow up to their Sunday runway debut, DVF has now released a short film using footage recorded on the Glass camera before, during and after the DVF NYFW show:

Google Glass is an intriguing proposition, I'll admit, though I'm not sold on the integration. For the moment, I'll take my technology in a more amenable way - my mobile, my tablet, and of course, an ever-present laptop. If you're with me, you'll want to vote in the fun design contest that HP (LONG an innovator, remember their first-of-it's-kind partnership with Vivienne Tam?) is running. 40 finalists took their challenge to design a stylish and functional laptop bag suited perfect for the small size of the brand's Ultrabook notebook computer, and one winner will be chosen by a panel of experts - namely: Jill of, the writers at Core 77, and Mondo from Project Runway Season 8. OH, and did I mention that they'll also receive $10,000? Sweet!
