intro’d to Billie here:
When Design and Tech Touch [PSFK 2014]
her company – wearable experiments:
from bio on we:ex site:
As a garment engineer she strongly believes people should not have to look like the technology that they have grown to love and depend on. Billie’s designs are sharp, experimental, naturally confident and subtly feminine in appearance integrating the latest technology. Design principals of colour, line, shape, proportion, tone, silhouette and texture are being brought to the wearable technology industry by Billie Whitehouse.
The other highlight for Billie in 2013 was meeting Sir Bob Geldorf, where he questioned “Are we all money junkies? How do we affect change?” His messages shook her to the core and she was inspired to create a business with moral and sustainable outcomes, wearable experiments.
The customer does not always know what they want nor can they image a future for what they might want. In my experience you have to show them the future that they might want.
