New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018: Julianna Bass
JULIANNA BASS UNVEILS SPRING / SUMMER 2018 COLLECTION WITH UNPRECEDENTED FASHION TECH DEVELOPMENT
Julianna Bass Spring / Summer 2018 collection centered on the concept of journeying to the future and the inherent emotional dichotomy that thus ensues: an anxious vulnerability as one leaves behind the familiar and progresses forward into the unknown, and yet an eagerness to get there and witness all of the magical advancements and innovations that have taken place.
To wit, Bass unveiled a cutting-edge "responsive garment" during her Spring / Summer 2018 fashion runway show. In partnership with LOOMIA, an innovative technology company that specializes in adding intelligence to everyday objects and the engineering masterminds behind the Zac Posen "Light" gown worn by Claire Danes to the 2016 MET Gala, Bass created two dresses that change colors. More specifically, in the areas designated by Bass's design, the dress's fabric shifted from one color to another thanks to thermochromic inks.
