Skin Stimulating Technologies 
Fashion Design for the 22nd Century

Fashion is Zeitgeist.

Today’s world is characterized by the rapid and constant evolution of technology. It is also characterized by an aging population with a simultaneous decline in birthrates. Keeping the body healthy, strong, and agile is a major concern today with the average lifespan being 67 + years.

TÔ Long-Nam is developing fashion garments with ‘Skin Stimulating Technologies’. Smart fabrics and modern technology will be integrated into fashion basics (tank tops, t-shirts, leggings, underwear, socks, etc.) to alleviate our bodies of stressors, ailments, and discomforts caused by common health problems. These basics will possess the abilities to vitalize blood circulation, boost energy, and enhance relaxation and wellbeing. This technology will have the capability to provide the individual with support for their specific health needs within a fashion garment.
