In October, we told you about an exciting new project that our colleagues in the Extras team had been working on with London College of Fashion.

The project required students to research design and produce creative concepts for new, wearable technology incorporating the remote display  LiveView™. We couldn’t tell you then but, behind the scenes, the students were also working on similar concepts incorporating our exciting new Android remote SmartWatch™, recently unveiled at CES 2012.

The winners of the project have now been announced.

First winner, Claire Monique Scanlon, created a houndstooth, two-tone print, jacket accessory for LiveView™. Aimed at fashion bloggers her garment can be worn as a tassel from the jacket, a tie to wrap the jacket in cold weather or detached and worn on the wrist. Claire’s design was chosen by Sony Ericsson Facebook fans from a shortlist of 12 London College of Fashion finalists.

Check out her design.

The second winner, Dominique Taylor, was chosen internally by the Extras team. Her SmartWatch™ Fashion Collection offered a range of high-tech clubbing garments with LED lights to create an illusion of length, size, neckline and hem. The SmartWatch™ is attached to a metal chain which can be worn as a necklace, bracelet or ring, while metal chains on the dress hems allow SmartWatch™ to attach as an accessory.

The two winners will now travel to Sweden to present their concepts to the Sony Ericsson Extras team. We’ll report back later with their experiences.
