From the Runway to Retail: Inside Israeli Fashion Tech
Amid major advances in technology, even industries long seen as low-tech are reaping the benefits of new innovations – and fashion is no exception.
Israeli technology has played a pivotal role in the rise of fashion tech, with local startups and designers harnessing the country’s strengths in such domains as artificial intelligence, e-commerce, 3D technology, and more to transform both the production and discovery of fashion products.
Amid the global turbulence caused by the coronavirus crisis, some of these technologies point to new and innovative ways for shoppers and designers to interact with fashion in a way that adheres to social distancing guidelines and keeps the public safe – from enabling more seamless online shopping experiences to offering new distance learning opportunities.
Here’s a look at a few of the dynamic players reimagining the future of fashion:
As technology continues to infuse the fashion world, the Israeli ecosystem offers both a rich institutional history – embodied by its world-renowned designers and institutions like the Shenkar College of Engineering and Design – as well as robust expertise in critical verticals, from AI to 3D printing and beyond. From the runways to online retail, the future of fashion is here – and Israel is helping build it.
