One up-and-coming trend investors should be aware of is wearable technology. It's best-known these days in the form of activity-monitoring wristbands from Nike and Fitbit, Google Glass, and of course Apple's long-rumored iWatch.
At the recent CE Week in New York City, however, Motley Fool analyst Rex Moore found evidence that serious fashion designers are joining the trend and are already putting out some interesting merchandise -- from temperature-regulating jackets to shoes made from a 3-D printer. Apple- and Android-device users can also celebrate the wide variety of fashion products for their toys, including an ingenious wearable iPad case.
The highlight of the week was the Fashion Ware runway show, produced by Living in Digital Times. Rex spoke with founder Robin Raskin about the show -- and the convergence of fashion and technology.
