A VIP PHYGITAL FASHION EXPERIENCE

April 27, 2024
6:00pm - 9:00pm

Experience the technology that puts the art back into fashion in this sustainable fashion show.

HOW IS PHYGITAL FASHION SUSTAINABLE?
The future of our planet relies on innovating outdated, unsustainable practices. Phygital fashion is an exciting, tech-driven, ethical, eco-conscious alternative to disposable fashion that enables digitally native fashion brands of any size to meet the needs of today's consumer-driven marketplace. Large and small e-commerce brands can test the market and make and sell personalized, customized, unique garments in a batched on-demand model as orders come in. They can print/cut/sew only what is needed when needed. Limited drops of unique engineered artwork printed on sustainable materials convert these designs from disposable fast fashion to collectible heirlooms.

Domestic, batched-on-demand, Phygital fashion is faster, ethical, and cheaper for the brand, and diverts unsustainable textiles from the world's landfills. With no excess inventory, brands of any size can say hello to a more sustainable, responsible, efficient, and affordable future!
