My favourite new fascination is a sewbot (sewing robot). This remarkable innovation designs, cuts and sews garments at a great rate, 24 hours a day.

According to the Economist, fully automated tailoring is just round the corner. Looking across the room at our skilled ma...

The fitness industry has revolutionised the clothes people use for leisure. No more the old sweaty T-shirt and baggy track suit bottoms, now everything is designer led, with the great ideas Stella McCartney had for London Olympics.

That wonderful Hans Anderson tale 'The Emperor's New Clothes', where the king convinced his sycophantic subjects that he was wearing fine robes when in fact he was starkers, until a small boy blurted out the truth and shattered the illusion.
