Last week we brought Replay’s Social Jeans to your attention, showing you what happens when technology and fashion is being fused together. Now pop artist Nicole Scherzinger takes it a bit further, appearing at the launch event for the new 4G network EE in the UK, wearing a dress that displays tweets in real-time.

Fans of Scherzinger could tweet using the hashtag #TweetTheDress and their short tweets would then appear directly on the Haute Couture Dress.

Check out the dress here:

The ‘world’s first Haute Couture Twitter Dress’ is designed by London-based interactive clothing company Cutecircuit. But it seems that their dress isn’t exactly the first one..

This year’s New York Fashion Week, Bloomingdales and Microsoft unveiled a ‘tweet-powered’ dress, called ‘Microsoft Research Printing Dress’ – sounds fashionably don’t you think? – that was being developed last year at Bloomingdale’s NYC 59th Street store.

The Printing Dress was almost entirely made of paper and had a projector underneath its surface to ‘print’ tweets onto the material. With the use of a keyboard on the dress’s, wearers could type tweets to be displayed. Visitors could also send tweets to the dress using the hashtag #MSBLOOMINGDALES.

Althoug Nicole Scherzinger didn’t appear in the world’s first – depends on how you interpret a ‘Twitter dress’ – it’s definitely the coolest! I would have really loved it when Nicole would had sung  ‘Don’t you wish your girlfriend could Tweet like me…’ in it icon smile The Worlds First Twitter Dress

It’s a great way way to raise attention for a new 4G network though! Do you still remember which one?

So what’s your opinion regarding Social Jeans and Twitter dressses – is digital couture becoming the new black?

    Digital commerce is growing massively and so is social commerce. Hopefully fashion reatilers will embrace the multi-brand fashion portals; much webtter that pumping money to get traffic to your own webshop.
