Seven Ways Spring 2014 Fashion Month Embraced Technology Like Never Before

Fallon x Samsung

Fallon's Dana Lorenz staged her first-ever runway show at New York Fashion Week last month, mixing ready-to-wear and accessories from the likes of Ohne Titel and Aquazzura with her own striking costume jewelry. But that's not all: Lorenz also collaborated with Samsung to integrate both the company's Note 3 smartphone and its brand new Galaxy Gear "smartwatch" into a handful of looks, along with chain- and stud-accented leather accessories she created especially for each. (FYI, the $299 Galaxy Gear hits stores in October—and yes, Fallon will be producing the tech accessories she sent down the runway!)

The fashion industry might be notoriously old school in a number of ways (we're the sort to savor the smell of a hot-off-the-press September issue, send handwritten thank-you notes for everything and keep leather-bound agendas)—but recently, the style sphere has begun to utilize technology in truly fascinating ways. Sure, we're all over Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest and Facebook—but the newfound love between fashion and tech goes far beyond mere social networking. From a world-famous London label that put the new iPhone to use before its release to a New York jewelry whiz that dreamt up some out-of-this-world accessories for Samsung's latest smartphone, click through above to see seven ways designers dove into the digital age this past fashion month.
