Coach Partners With ZERO10 on AR Try-On Tech for Metaverse Fashion Week

Coach and ZERO10 team up on AR try-on tech for the second Metaverse Fashion Week.


The second edition of Metaverse Fashion Week (MVFW) is set to take place at the end of this month in Decentraland’s Luxury District, where global brands will feature their digital wearables. MVFW is a four-day-long event that combines fashion and AR try-on technology to offer a unique, immersive experience to attendees.

Metaverse Fashion Week, which will run from March 28–31 this year, will see the participation of luxury brand Coach for the first time, showcasing its products in the virtual show. The event brings together top designers and brands, making it an exciting opportunity for Coach to showcase its signature leather-made products in the metaverse.

ZERO10’s AR Try-On Tech Highlights Coach’s Iconic Tabby Bag

In collaboration with ZERO10, Coach will introduce its iconic Tabby bag with a unique AR enhancement as part of its upcoming activation during MVWF. The feature will be accessible via the ZERO10 app, allowing users in Decentraland to try on the product virtually, providing a new and engaging way to experience the brand.

The AR enhancement effect, which makes use of cutting-edge technology, adds a unique touch to the virtual fashion event and provides visitors with a dynamic way to interact with Coach’s products. Using AR try-on, shoppers may virtually try on clothes, accessories, and even cosmetics before making a purchase. Buyers interested in a product can virtually see how they might look in it.

As a global digital fashion platform, ZERO10 offers AR try-on technology to brands and independent creators. Through its iOS app, users can try on digital clothing in real time using their phone camera, collect items in a virtual wardrobe, and create shareable content for social media.

The digital collections are collaborations with both emerging and established fashion brands, designers, musicians, and artists and are released in limited drops within the app. The app’s cloth simulation technology simulates fabric flow, while the body tracking technology lets users try on virtual outfits for unique social media photos and videos.

Blending Tradition and Innovation

This year’s Metaverse Fashion Week theme, “Future Heritage,” encourages both traditional and emerging fashion designers to engage and work together. As part of the upcoming event, brands will conduct interactive virtual experiences both on and off the runway.

Dolce & Gabbana plans to exhibit pieces from its Future Reward digital design competition. Tommy Hilfiger intends to launch new wearables on a daily basis, along with products powered by artificial intelligence. DKNY will have a pop-up art gallery and restaurant called DKNY.3. Adidas, like Coach, will make its MVFW debut this year. For owners of its “Into the Metaverse” non-fungible token (NFT) collection, the sports brand will debut its first set of digital wearables.

Coach will also participate in Brand New Vision (BNV), a Web3 fashion ecosystem that enables attendees to try on wearables from various global brands seamlessly and instantly. BNV has created specifically designed stations to showcase the digital clothing collections created in partnership with top brands such as Tommy Hilfiger, Carolina Herrera, Michael Kors, and Vivienne Tam. Moreover, a newly built “Fashion Plaza” will also exhibit emerging digital fashion possibilities.

MVFW Open Metaverses and Web3 Interoperability

Dr. Giovanna Graziosi Casimiro, Decentraland’s head of MVFW, remarked that they are honored to carry on the Metaverse Fashion Week tradition this year. “We are seeing the return of many luxury fashion houses, and also the emergence and elevation of digitally native fashion. We are excited to see the world’s greatest fashion minds engaging in digital fashion and exploring what it can mean for their brands, and for their communities,” she said.

MVFW23, organized by Decentraland and UNXD, is an immersive art and culture event, in association with the Spatial and OVER metaverses, that welcomes fashionistas from all over the globe to gather, mingle, and witness the most recent breakthroughs in digital fashion.

Fashion brands trying on various virtual technologies like AR try-on is a testament to their commitment to staying at the forefront of the latest technology trends and providing their customers with unique and immersive experiences.
