The field of Fashionable and Wearable Interaction is indeed emerging—and in many different directions, with different definitions, different models, different implementations. This special issue of the International Journal of Design aims to reflect on the status quo and to find new paths toward a maturity in this area of research. We are seeking high-quality, original papers that address conceptual, theoretical, methodological, and practical issues of designing for fashionable interaction—papers that will serve to enhance the overall body of design knowledge that bridges these different disciplines.

With the growth and strong reception of She Ji. The Journal of Design, Economics, and Innovation, submissions are rising. This is a welcome development. Because we are a hybrid journal, this also finds us in need of additional reviewers in several subject specialist disciplines to undertake double blind review of the submitted manuscripts.
It is difficult for a journal spanning several fields to develop and maintain a reviewer team with the right skills for all submissions. We value the contribution that reviewers make to She Ji, and we acknowledge the reviewers of articles in each issue. In most cases, we seek two reviews. We ask a member of the editorial board to write one, and we ask an external reviewer to write another. In the case of significant interdisciplinary articles, we may seek a third review.
