TECH TUESDAY: The Impact of Virtual & Augmented Reality on Fashion

As part of our ongoing quest to educate our growing fashion community, we ask a tech-based company to come in monthly and talk shop. From 3D prototyping to virtual draping, tools for tracking and storytelling to bio materials grown in Brooklyn labs, our speakers are engineered to inspire you with all the latest and greatest in tech.

Much hype surrounds Virtual and Augmented Reality, and it only seems to increase. It has the potential to fundamentally change the way we interact with the world, but where are we now? And how can we apply it before that sleek uber future comes about? Drawing from our experience exploring these exciting new technologies, we will talk about what we have learned so far, where the industry stands today and where we believe it will go.
