Techstyle is comprised of 3 categories. The first is material & supply chain innovation, creating a new era for manufacturing. An example is Unspun who make customized jeans on demand through innovative technology and sustainable sourcing.
The second is wearables merging technology & style – these companies are crafting beautifully-designed yet functional products that improve day-to-day living. Origami Labs will open its very first pop-up at Techstyle X. Known as the ‘world’s first voice-powered ring’, ORII allows you to instantly send messages, make calls and use a voice assistant in a screen-free way, with just a touch of the ear.
The third category is new retail experiences. Goxip, for example, creates the ultimate ecommerce platform for searching, discovering and purchasing fashion and beauty products with text and image recognition. TG3D creates 3D digital avatars of customers to produce tailored techstyle apparel. Their scanning station is a self-scanning service that can provide essential data for a customer in just five seconds, and store it on the customer’s mobile phone with a paired “Cloudzet” app. Once customers have their digital avatar and measurement data, they may then use this in any of their future shopping experiences to make sure they purchase the right size, whether online or offline.
At the grand opening of Techstyle X on 6th April, representatives from The Mills Fabrica, existing and potential members will be invited to join and witness the launch of a new chapter of experiential lifestyle and techstyle retail in Hong Kong.
