Normcore, meet your step-sister trend, Nerdcore. To your relief, she’s everything you’re not, and most delighted to steal the limelight you’ve, ironically, been trying to evade. The parents of this geek-chic clothing trend are Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz of London’s CuteCircuit, and they’ve been strutting their offspring tech textiles on runways since 2004, with a more recent audience-lighting show¬†at the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week. We’re still undecided as to which trend claims the ugly step-sister title though. Shall we toss a coin?
