Mommy blogger Angie, who gives her 4 year old daughter the nickname Mayhem to preserve some anonymity, noticed early on that her daughter was into fashion far more than a typical toddler.

In attempt to restore order in her closets, Angie suggested that they make dresses together out of paper. Mayhem was hooked and still is 9 months later, which is an eternity in toddler time, leading us to believe this is more than just a phase.

The idea of digitally customizable clothing has been around for a while now.

Who really wants to pull on a shirt strewn with chunky, uncomfortable LEDs? That’s where the latest version of tshirtOS looks to be a real wardrobe changer. Unveiled today in a collaboration between SWITCH and Ballantine’s Whisky, the makers claim that the shirt is not only programmable and washable, but also flexible enough to be scrunchable – which appears to make this customizable garment ready for the clubs and the streets.
