The article investigates the effect of smart technology on fashion.

However, there is a huge divide between goals and reality due to the gap between designers and technologies. Among the advanced technology-incorporated fabrics/garments are temperature controlled fabrics, shape memory fabrics, color changing fabrics, conductive textiles, and self-cleaning fabrics.
