What?

Do both the model, the material and the spectator need to be in the same place at the same time for us to be able to take part in a new design up close? Maybe not!

Why?

In the Textile and Design program, students practice sewing, pattern construction, fashion drawing and materials science, among other things. Gathering for a fashion show is a common way for students to learn more through each other's designs and material choices, but also to show off their knowledge and creations to the outside world. Today, however, this presupposes that everyone needs to be in the same place and crowded around an individual garment, which means that it can be difficult to reflect on a work at your own pace, as well as to return to the latter. The question also arises when H22 City Expo approaches - how can we keep a fashion show rolling for 35 days without needing a huge number of models and hosts?

How?

During the spring of 2022, teachers and students at Nicolaiskolan are exploring the possibilities within virtual technologies to enable a fashion show that can be experienced at any time and as close as possible.

Update:

During the H22 City Expo, trade fair visitors could experience a fashion show using VR technology. After the first tests, the interest remains in delving deeper into the possibilities of 3D technology. Going forward, teachers and students will work with the CLO 3D program to replace or simplify traditional time-&material-consuming practical aspects of teaching, and to make VR a part of the creation process for students.

Impact target

More knowledge about the possibilities of virtual experiences in teaching

Resident involvement

The initiative is being explored together with the students at Nicolaiskolan.
