Tech Meets Fashion at The Met Gala

Super model Karolina Kurkova

This was one of the biggest nights for demonstrating tech wearables. The fashion company, Marchesa, designed a couture-gown with the IBM Watson cognitive computer system. 

It was debuted by super model Karolina Kurkova at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Benefit. The extravaganza is held the first Monday in May to raise money for the Costume Institute.

Marchesa is a high-profiled, brand specializing in high end womenwear. It was established in 2004 by Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig. Chapman is married to movie mogul Harvey Weinstein.

Watson gave Craig and Chapman suggestions on design and choices of material. The Marchesa founders came up with the idea of a gown that communicates through pulsating lights.

The Marchesa gown was the talk of the gala. This is just the very start of clothes that communicate.
