While the range of talking points is vast – from magazine cover choices to new fabrics to e-commerce and wearables – the connection between fashion and technology persists as an underlying theme. Vogue’s September cover story examines the role of social media in building the brands of this generation’s supermodels, while New York Fashion Week is set to feature the first ever tweet-powered fashion show along with cutting-edge wearable releases from high-end designers, including Ralph Lauren.

Style programming at SXSW Interactive will cover these areas and beyond, exploring the complex ties between fashion, art, culture and technology. To vote for your favorite style proposals and see which topics are trending in the SXSW community, visit PanelPicker and search “fashion, style and wearable technology.” Remember to cast your vote before PanelPicker closes next Friday, September 5th.
