Biography

Claire Eliot is a designer and a creative technologist who designed interactive garments and make research on new process of manufacturing. Fascinated by all that fashion says about our social behaviors, Claire Eliot joined the Duperré School, where she became interested in the links between fashion style and new technologies. Then she developed technical skills at the ENSCI and learned electronics with hackers. She now makes connections between fashion and digital and highlights connections between these apparently paradoxical sectors. Identifying herself with the “Critical Design” movement, she considers that the designer is an artist who has a social role to play. She is co-founder of ‘The Fashiontech’, an association that aims to bring together stakeholders wishing to participate in developing technologies and ethics fashion and organizes events around this vision.

I work on electronic integration into textile to obtain wearable clothes with different properties like flexibility, thinness, lightness.
