What is CyberWearz and Construction of the First Cyber-doublet

What is CyberWearz? CyberWearz is a crazy blending of Renaissance garb (lets face it, these were some of the finest garments ever designed) with a 1960s-70s hippie (or merry prankster) spirit and landing solidly in the 21st Century with a garment that is both beautiful, irreverant and a great place to park and configure all your techno-wares.

As Professor Daria Dorosh of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York says... "we have all this talent in the garment business but who understands how to design clothing that is real modern streetwear, ready for all the gadgets we carry around yet doesn't look like something from a war zone or Lara Croft?".

Well, rising to that challenge is the CyberWearz Bruce Damer, his band of merry prankster designers and the Art Bus Studio NoFurthur.
