Fashion designer Sylvia Heisel is obsessed with technology and sustainability – and is an expert when it comes to new materials, manufacturing processes, and physical computing related to fashion and wearables. She consults on design for smart wearables and new tech applications for fashion.
Heisel presently divides her time between her own consumer brand, HEISEL, and working with other companies in the wearables/tech/fashion space. The East Africa-born Heisel has spoken on the subject of fashion tech at SF Design Week, Eyebeam NYC, the Apple retail stores and most recently, at the Wearable Tech Expo in NYC. In partnership with her husband, artist Scott Taylor, she creates and consults on sustainable temporary interiors, environments, displays and events, combining contemporary design, art, fashion, culture, technology and lifestyle to help make the world just a little bit more amazing.
