Media designer Syuzi Pakhchyan embodies geek chic. Pakhchyan's studio Sparklab mixes culture, craft and technology by weaving circuitry into bags, jewelry, wristbands or bicycle safety jackets.
She displayed her tote bags decorated with circuits at this weekend's Maker Faire and drew a huge crowd of geeky girls (and guys!) intrigued by the totes as well as Pakhchyan's Do It Yourself kits which included a circuit which you can sew on to any fabric. "Do It Yourself" is the primary theme of the Maker Faire in general, so they were naturally a hit, but Pakhchyan's style and ingenuity were still standouts from the crowd.
