Pauline van Dongen is a Dutch fashion designer specialised in wearable technology. As a creator intrigued by the notion of interactivity in fashion, she researches the human body in relation to its surroundings. She is fascinated by concepts of change, movement, energy and perception, as she believes the future of fashion lies in its premise to be dynamic and changing. To her, technology is not merely a tool, but an important part of the aesthetics.
Pauline’s vision is based on the belief that technology can add new value and meaning to fashion. By enhancing the senses, our embodied experience, as well as the way we interact with our surroundings, become paramount. Rather than seeing nature and technology as opposing forces, she aims to create a symbiosis between them.
