New incubator MIA-H boosts fashion technology in Flanders
The new incubator MIA-H fosters the growth of fashion technology in Flanders. Stimulating the industry creates exciting business opportunities for the future of fashion.
Fashion tech has diverse applications: imagine a coat with a built-in heart monitor, or jewelry that changes color depending on your outfit. Fashion collective Jasna Rok, also in Flanders, is working on such innovations. Stijn Bijnens, CEO of LRM, is excited: “What’s so interesting about high-tech wearables is that they incorporate new technologies in accessories and garments of the future. In the digital age, the hybridization of fashion and ICT creates amazing business opportunities.”
