The Digital Atelier: Design for the Metaverse
Thursday 13 July
15:00 – 15:30
Discover the future of digital fashion design in an exclusive panel talk with leading experts!
Digital fashion design is on the rise, and designers at the forefront of this movement are pushing the boundaries of how garments are perceived in both physical and virtual worlds. These designers harness new skills that have evolved from the conventional design and manufacturing process, and merged with 3D digital design.
Similarly to the traditional studio or atelier, finessing a digital garment often involves many people and processes, although the outcome can be worlds a part from the haute couture or ready-to-wear that appears on runways each year.
Join us at The Digital Atelier panel talk to hear from leading experts and pioneering digital designers on the future of design for the metaverse.
This event is part of our digital series, which covers three rapid-fire panel talks with industry leaders from the digital fashion space. Whilst you’re in the neighbourhood, why not sign up for the rest of our digital series:
