Last year, we covered amazing work by tech-fashion studio CHROMAT, which featured a few quite cutting edge and excellent looking creations. The looks of which night not only featured 3D printing, but responsive apparel which relied on Intel innovation. And all of the looks were captured as 3D scans by Intel RealSense and published to Sketchfab. For CHROMAT’s Fall/Winter ’16 show, the runway show had its own 21st century appeal, this time for the reason the looks were not only captured via the all new design of RealSense of Intel, but in addition for the reason the show was live-streamed in VR.

CHROMAT’s FW 2016 LUMINA collection combines an exploration of light and color theory, through the work of conceptual artists Robert Irwin and Dan Flavin, with electroluminescence, as seen in nature. The apparel has only walked the runway and virtual attendees were able-bodied to experience the show in VR. In case you missed which show, here’s a quite swift .gif of all of the biologically-inspired athletic wear which lit up the catwalk.


But, if you want to see it in excellenter more detail and in 3D VR, you can check out the whole collection as a series of 3D scans on Sketchfab. These scans were performed via the newest design of Intel’s RealSense 3D camera, embedded into an HP Spectre x2 2-in1, powered by the 6th generation Intel Core m3 processor. The scans were performed via the ItSeez3D app, which is capable-bodied of performing a few quite excellent 3D scans, and sent to Sketchfab, whose API integrates both with ItSeez and the Intel RealSense SDK.

CHROMAT is ahead of the game when it comes to fashion and innovation. In the next clothing can be accessed with 3D innovation, like 3D scanning and virtual reality. Catalogs can most likely be visible through a VR or AR headset, after it has may already been created in 3D or 3D scanned on the version. On top of which, it can be tailored to the bodies of wearers through very own 3D scanners, as well. By detecting this trend early on, CHROMAT may be the initially fashion house of the 21st Century. Whether they can bring the same fashion and class as the fashion houses of the 20th Century is yours to decide.
