Most of the fashion and gadgets are same same. Not much happening, really. What is new is the types of fabric and collection of types of fabrics and metals. Changing the human shape geometrically is Appropriation Art because the Bauhaus period did it really well early on. I think most of fashion will not change vastly until we alter the body physically.

Regardless, I still enjoy watching VHI and the fashion shows because they are fascinating events and the cloths are simply gorgeous and sensual.
