A collaborative project, which emphasized on the value of cross-discipline collaboration within the higher education curriculum in the areas of fashion, wearable computing, and electronics, is described. The project ran for a period of 10 weeks, under a new module named intelligent clothing. The students had to consider various aspects of the design process, specially the integration and usability of the electronic gesturing device that consisted of a radio frequency identification system (RFID). The project has produced an aesthetically pleasing wearable shirt, designed specially for the gesturing device developed by Headon and Coulouris. The shirt was produced in a formal style and could be worn with or without jacket. The wearable gesturing garment is currently undergoing testing to determine the reliability of the original data.
