Huawei Australia, together with Vogue Australia, revealed two new editions to Huawei’s smartwatch collection designed specifically for females.
“As fashion trends continue to evolve, wearable technology is now accepted and adopted as a conscious fashion statement. As one of the leading consumer electronics brands globally, Huawei is committed to leading the way in the fusion of technology and fashion to create products that are equal parts aesthetically-appealing, versatile and practical,” Marc Di Giacomo, Head of Consumer Marketing at Huawei Australia said.
“We’re excited to be partnering with Vogue to bring our vision to life. With renowned fashion photographer Mario Testino guest editing the incredible April issue of Vogue Australia and, of course, the photographer behind our current global campaign starring Karlie Kloss, Huawei is a serious player in the fashion world with the elegant new female watch so much more than tech wearable,” he added.
Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Australia, Edwina McCann, says technology, like fashion, is something that has and will continue to form part of our personal style. “Fashion influences every aspect of our lives, so it is no surprise that we’re starting to see technology evolving to not only make our lives easier but also fit seamlessly into our everyday style.
“We’re delighted to be a part of Huawei’s ongoing mission to combine its expertise in technology with innovation in fashion in its latest range of techno-chic wearable technology,” she added.
