IoDF will host a digital fashion workshop as part of the partnership on June 15, open to fashion students around the world.

This will reportedly give them the opportunity to better understand the future of digital design, its sustainability benefits and how metaverse innovations can be implemented within their creative practices to further reduce waste.

In addition, IoDF co-founders Leanne Elliott Young and Cattytay will join the judging panel for the global final of the International Student Design Competition, which will take place in London on September 15.

IoDF will produce a digital asset of the apparel category winner’s work as part of the prize package, “enabling the design to come to life through an innovative AR try-on that can be experienced digitally”.
