Fashionology x Von Bismark


It is getting Clueless verses Minority Report up in here, with new virtual wardrobe software developed by Von Bismark, a start-up in collaboration with the Microsoft ventures programme.  Utilising the motion capture Kinect 3D, just as you might scan yourself in to an Xbox game, the same principle works for this mirror. The Kinect 3D sensor captures your skeleton and picks up key parts of your body like shoulders, and hips to allow for draping.  The next steps are to simply pick your clothes and accessories, that adjust to your shape.  In reality although 3D, the garments look more like cut out paper dresses, so don’t expect perfect draping, but will be a great reference point and time saver for overall style, and if a particular pattern will suit you.  Eoghan O’Sullivan from Von Bismark walked us through another virtual libraryl the Lewis and Clark virtual mirror was very impressive.  It works the exact same principle, but breaks down every component of the shirt from collar to cuff taking perfect measurements to ensure a bespoke perfect fit. The augmented reality will be available this summer in select high street pops ups, and airports
