Does the future belong to fashion made of pixels and bytes? Virtual fashion is already generating billions in sales. Two evenings with international speakers who will discuss the topic of digital fashion in workshops and lectures. From 23-24 November, from 7 p.m. each evening, curated and organized by nextReality.Hamburg. 

Wednesday,Nov. 23.: 7 p.m.: Panel Talk: Digital fashion, fashion in virtual space, what is possible, where are we and what does the future look like? 

In the metaverse, collections are already being launched in digital showrooms. Virtual fashion is already generating immense sales and new, promising business models and distribution channels are emerging all the time: Fashion already takes place virtually, whether in video games or as purely digital garments in the form of 3D designs, which are diligently disseminated by users on social media. And the topics of sustainability and consumer behavior also play an elementary role at the interface of real and virtual fashion. The potential of current developments is enormous, as are the challenges.

Thursday, Nov. 24., 7 p.m.: Workshop: Digital Fashion Design Process Workshop: AR in Fashion or how I can wear digital fashion.
with Anna Liedtke (The Fabricant)

As new technologies advance, so does the fashion industry. Especially Augmented Reality will play a central role in the fashion world in the future. For example, 3D objects of clothing can be projected onto a body via the cell phone camera. The result can be seen on the cell phone screen and photos and videos can also be taken. AR technology can enable young designers to work more creatively than ever before by integrating the technology into their processes. Not only does this save time and money, but it enables creative minds to work with fewer resources - less fabric, fewer man-hours, etc. - to visualize ideas. - to visualize ideas and save the environment in the process.

Who is this workshop for?

Primarily for fashion designers* and creatives who want to explore more ways to visualize their ideas. Most of the time, the question with digital fashion is "What can I do with it?". We want to create an example of an AR experience and show how to easily incorporate it into a workflow. Additionally, we also want to go through the limitations of today's technology and how we can shape the future together.

It is an advantage if you have already had initial experience with the CLO 3D software.
