Texas Immersive Monthly MeetUp: “Fashion Meets Immersive”

February 2 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm CST

Runways and boutiques will soon be full of virtual fashion pieces not made out of fabric and thread but from created on a computer using pixels and worn by virtual avatars that represent us. This event will give you a crash course on the world of virtual fashion, touching on the creative and technical process behind designing a digital fashion line and exploring the digital spaces in which these pieces will be bought and worn.

You will learn about the innovative business models built around virtual fashion, that have been adopted by major fashion houses like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Balenciaga and that have opened the doors for a new generation of independent fashion designers to create clothes we have never imagined before. Whether you want to be ahead of the style curve or just understand how emerging technology is changing a cornerstone of our culture, join us on Feb 2nd at the Texas Immersive Institute Lab (CMA 6.154) and looking into the future of virtual fashion.
