Speaker spotlight: Pauline van Dongen

Pauline van Dongen is a fashion designer creating wearable technology that combines aesthetics with practicality. Her philosophy is that the tech aspect of her clothing must provide a genuine purpose.

Pauline’s work centers around the form and movement of the human body. From a wool jumper that stores health data for the elderly to a formal shirt that discreetly nudges you when you’re slouching at the office, her clothing is cutting edge in both looks and innovation.

At TNW Conference, Pauline will share how wearable tech needs to be approached from a new perspective in order to expand the creative opportunities it can afford. Don’t miss her keynote on May 10 – get tickets now.

That concludes today’s TNW2019 Daily! Tune in next week for more TNW Conference highlights, and make sure to catch up on previous editions right here. Happy Easter weekend!
