Virtual design at Playground | Immersive Tech Week

  • Affiliated research project

  • Our world is rapidly changing and is taking on a more and more digital shape. Emerging digital technologies inform and inspire a new generation of fashion designers to move beyond the material dimension of fashion. In an interactive exhibition at the Playground (Friday December 2 from 10.00 – 20.00 hrs), WdKA’s third year Fashion Design students showcase their breath-taking virtual worlds and digital craftsmanship.

    Prototyping digital garments, surreal avatars and speculative landscapes, the students explore the possibilities of virtual designing. Guided by the technical knowledge and skills available at the WdKA Stations, the students apply, test and stretch these new possibilities within their personal vision. It allows them to re-imagine our gendered bodies, to explore the boundaries of our human species and to expand our understanding of identity. Immerse yourself in their personal and intimate propositions of what virtual fashion has to offer.
