Berlin – Even if the Berlin Senate prefers traditional implementations to innovative Web3 solutions when awarding its Fashion Week funding – the future is unstoppable. This is proven by The Berlin Metaverse®, in which, thanks to Anna Franzsika Michel, CEO, and co-founder of yoona.ai, fashion brands can experiment in the Metaverse and try out new possibilities of fashion technology from January 16, 2023, 6 PM. The digital space of The Berlin Metaverse® is part of the physical “Yoonaverse.berlin Conference” (January 17, from 2 PM) and enables companies to present digital collections and share them on a global level, with customers and suppliers the around the world and conduct workshops and private events in an unlimited capacity.
The Berlin Metaverse® is the first metaverse event for a fashion week in Germany. The growth potential of the fashion industry and the promotion of local design talents from Berlin and Germany are the leitmotifs of The Berlin Metaverse®. By creating an immersive experience, brands can evolve beyond the limits of time, space, and physics: The future of fashion lies in the realistic representation of digital garments – and that is exactly what The Berlin Metaverse® shows. Anna Franziska Michel explains: “We present first-class quality in digital portability – real ‘digital twins’. The technology enables brands to work together with everyone involved along the value chain and ultimately impress the end consumer with a fully immersive experience.”
In short: “Real-To-Life 3D representations” not only save companies the creation of prototypes but can also offer their buyers and customers a completely new and exciting collection experience – without any physical presence and the associated costs and resources.
The Berlin Metaverse® is therefore the ideal forum to use the growth potential of the fashion industry and to promote and connect both local design talents from Berlin and well-known brands from all over Germany.
Pioneers in “The Berlin Metaverse®” include Gerry Weber, FelderFelder, Thaely, Esther Perbandt, Yes My Love, Laemon, Auf Augenhoehe, Chamakam, and Martin Appélt.
In addition to collections and stores, The Berlin Metaverse® also offers daily reporting from the Fashion Week shows the live broadcast of the yoonaverse conference on January 17th, 2023, and great talks with prominent guests, such as GNTM juror Thomas Hayo, who will be present on January 16th .2023 from 7:05 PM. live on stage about “Beauty and Fashion: Exploring the Impact of AI and Fashiontech on the Future” with Maria-Liisa Bruckert, CEO and co-founder of SQIN.
