The future is about to get more cyberpunk than ever before, with designers taking to the streets with the latest cyberpunk clothing and accessories.
The first exhibition of cyberpunk fashion is at the University of Limerick this week and the second is taking place in Dublin on Monday.
“The new cyberpunk is about breaking down barriers, creating opportunities for people, and taking control of what they can control,” said Ms Eileen O’Sullivan, lecturer in fashion design at the university.
“There’s a huge amount of excitement about what is happening and what the future looks like,” she said.
“This is about making people feel a part of something that is really connected and that’s very different from traditional cities where you have a wall of glass or a concrete structure.””
Ms O’ Sullivan said cyberpunk culture is about embracing new ideas and new technology.””

Ms O’ Sullivan said cyberpunk culture is about embracing new ideas and new technology.
“It’s a very exciting and innovative way of thinking about urban design, but also about using technology to create a better life for people,” she added.
“I think the next few years will be about what we can do to create that.”
The cyberpunk community is a very young one and we are in the beginning stages of this.
“Cyberpunk is an important and very vibrant sub-culture in this country and it is one of the few subcultures in the world that can be represented through the fashion industry.”
This is one area where fashion is becoming very relevant in terms of making that space more inclusive and open for people to explore and create something new.
“Ms Eileen said the fashion and design community needs to be aware of how the cybernetic future is affecting their own industries and industries in general.”
We need to think about the future in terms not just of fashion, but what technology and design are going to mean for our future and our lives,” she explained.
“In the cyberworld, you can see this very powerful trend that is happening where cybernetic technology is transforming our lives.”
What you’re seeing is that the cyber community is very connected, but we need to recognise that we are all connected.”
So we need a healthy relationship between the two.
“That’s why we need more women in fashion.”
If you don’t have a diverse group of people who can design clothing for you, that is a problem for you.
” Ms Eichs said the world needs to realise that there is a new cyberworld out there and that it is changing the world.”
But it’s not all good news.”
