Fashion is a popular passion claimed around the globe: it represents cultures and individual personality. Being loved and wanted by the majority of people has led it to be one of the most harmful industries in the world. As we have all finally understood, we want to reject pollution and exploitation, not fashion! Keep an eye on these underrated technological approaches because they are the real game changers, for now and tomorrow!



We all agree on the point of circular production. Until now, we had seen how a garment could be subjected to a recycling process similar to that of paper. Despite being efficient, it still consumes a lot of energy through the process. On the other hand, dyes and water is a huge problem when it comes to  equilibrate the final environmental impact.



From 3D personalized avatars to real people contacting you via the internet; screens are our new mirrors! Aren't you fed up with having a capsule wardrobe in your aspirations, instead of hanging in your closet? Consider contacting a fashion stylist, then! No, they are not only assisting celebrities: they are the ultimate masters of all the store windows and back rooms there can be to know.

If you want to minimize your mistakes and stop regretting purchases, this is the way to go. It is the big bet for the top future jobs in fashion, for all those readers studying fashion. If you’ve been following our articles on the latest fashion news, you’ll be aware of the potential of the metaverse. Well, you won’t believe this new virtual world is going to make itself up to people, right? Stylists are going to be the first ones to own this parallel system. They're going to be like your financial manager (or should we say wardrobe manager); always ready to save your look, wallet and planet.




Internet has brought facilities to fit pieces to individual measurements. What that means is that mass production can be diminished with no benefit loss for the companies. Although it is the best new we could have, it's still within studies, because it seems to be unpliable to a few companies as it would increase the final pollution.

The day this system is definitely applicable and flawless, we will be the first to give you the exclusive article it deserves! For the moment, we encourage you to have a close eye to its advances.



Up to now, we have transferred to you the effects of technology in the industry that are closer to consumers. However, we would love to have a section for Neri Oxman. She’s considered to be born in the wrong era, as she belongs to the future. Her meddling in engineering, biology, architecture and fashion has brought to our time a true scientist like no other. We are going to recommend a documentary about her work in the coming weeks, so stay tuned. But, for now, we can tell you that it has been able to weave meters of silk without harming a single animal, and create clothing that complements human organs.

But for the twist in our imagination, keeping with today's topic: she got to recycle abandoned sea dead animal remains to innovative materials. Can you imagine it? Recycle what nature itself rejects. She embodies the future understanding of waste and recycling.



Stay with us for the latest on Neri, recycling and technological advances in fashion's smartest age. Enter 2022 with Luxiders, strongly aware that it can be a revealing year for this industry and the planet.
