Chromatic fabrics enter the mainstream market

Implications - Heat reactive or chromatic fabrics are trickling down from the ranks of high fashion to enter mainstream consciousness as consumers continue to search for unique products to set them apart from the rest.

Most importantly, it indicates the disruptive force of technology to influence even abstract concepts, such as style.
