Designers used programming languages Python and C# to help with software development, and then used 3D printing and laser cutting to put together the first designs. The phones are able to load static images, or adjust to the wearer and the type of day she has had, using live video streams.

"This unique project is about exploring the possibilities of smart technology and fashion coming altogether, as well as supporting new talent to create something special using the beautifully designed Nokia Lumia 1520," said Annie Kearney, Nokia Brand Lab, in a statement.

Technology is finding a bigger presence in the high fashion world, with augmented reality and virtual reality also making a splash. Expect to see 3D printing also hit the runway at a larger frequency in 2014, though cost effectiveness will still scare some designers away.
