Wild Capture and The Immersive KIND Collaborate at London Fashion Week 2022
Wild Capture’s Cohort Fashion Tools Deliver Lifelike Digital Human Clothing for Live and Metaverse Fashion Show Experiences
LOS ANGELES — September 20, 2022 — Wild Capture, a technology, and services company for the creation of digital humans, is pleased to announce it is partnering with The Immersive KIND NFT Gallery and 3D Fashion House, a multidisciplinary collective exploring tomorrow through creative technology, at London Fashion Week 2022.
Wild Capture was tapped by Kadine James, noted global metaverse strategist at Accenture and CEO and Founder of The Immersive KIND, to produce bespoke digital human performance models specifically for artists Tetiana Rozmoritsa, Yashvanth Kumar, and Aya Skikh whose designs will be included in the collective’s various experiential events during the show.
According to James, the collaboration with Wild Capture supports a metaverse fashion experience that is reflective of the future of the fashion industry. Hosted on Spatial as a virtual world event, The Immersive KIND event space will go live on Wednesday, September 21, and remain on display until September 28, 2022. The experience aims to bring together designers, artists, musicians, DJs, and innovators from around the world to celebrate the explosion of creativity taking place in London in true Web 3.0 style. (Note: The Wild Capture digital human performance videos can be viewed on The Immersive KIND Metaverse venue throughout the event.) Wild Capture’s next-generation Digital Human Platform enables artists and creators to produce high-quality digital humans with cutting-edge volumetric video technologies. For The Immersive KIND, Wild Capture imported the artist’s clothing models into its Cohort Fashion (Cohort) tool that blends volumetric video, AI, and USD technologies to capture a live human performance from many angles simultaneously. The Cohort pipeline creates customized, computer-generated lifelike physics and texture onto three-dimensional digital human characters for each virtual performer that will be projected for display at the event.
