New York Fashion Week, which ended last Thursday, brought together the biggest names in haute couture to showcase some of the weirdest and wildest designs people could hang off their bodies. A number of bloggers took the opportunity to use NYFW as a backdrop to talk about science.
Our science comic contributor, makinaro, took it one step further. He wondered what would happen if designers took the most advanced technologies and scientific concepts to put into their fashions. We present his imagination at work.
Check out some of the wacky fashions I devised for Txchnologist today!
Yesterday I confused some people with a photo of my parents’ goose, Abby. She sleeps in the playpen. She wears a diaper. Loves romaine lettuce, swimming in the lake, and Nascar
Watching Doctor Who with this weird little dinosaur.

While I was always a Sailor Jupiter fan, It would be an honor.
Anonymous said: I'm really disappointed that someone so interested in science would spread something so factually inaccurate. Just one glance at the criticism of Anita Sarkeesian and the credibility of her threats should at least make you question such a one-sided story, but as a man you feel you know more about this than the many, many women who have spoken out against Anita and Zoe, because you glanced at an article? If you're interested in true feminism and science please check @CHSommers on Twitter.
If I had a quarter for every patronizing, passive-aggressive rando who started their email/comment with “I thought you cared about science…” I’d be able to put myself through an advanced degree in Theoretical GTFO, Anon.
So keep being disappointed. NEXT.
