Idea #65 - The Anomaly of Digital Fashion
“Digital fashion is real, and it exists in so many virtual universes, ranging from basic social networks to fully developed virtual worlds known as the metaverse, letting people express themselves in a way not possible before.”
-Gala Marija Vrbanic, Croatian digital fashion designer
Today we watched The New Reality of Fashion is Digital, and learned about digital fashion and the impressive pace at which it is flourishing.
Digital fashion, in simpler terms, is the concept of fabricating clothes using AI and 3D softwares. Needless to say, it is all the rage among gaming enthusiasts. With thousands of “skins” to choose from, everyone wants their virtual avatars to look chic with their bold fashion statement online.
The idea of digital fashion is rather interesting. It allows self-expression in a way never possible before, being inclusive regardless of one’s gender, size, and race. We also saw in Digital Fashion May be the Answer to Saving the Planet - many of its other perks. It is not only sustainable but also yields zero waste to the environment.
Like any concept, digital fashion also has its share of upside and downside. It all comes down to how the individual decides to use it responsibly. As long as it is used responsibly and in moderation, we can all have a good time trying on our digital outfits!
