Fashion Meets Technology – Ralph Lauren SS15

I wrote a three-part article last year that featured the use of holographic fabric in fashion. Click the images below to read those articles. This SS2015, there were a number of designers using the holographic fabric again which I will feature in the next article.

 When I think of Ralph Lauren, I think of timeless classic designs. Lauren isn’t being featured on DNA Stylix this time for his clothing, but rather his ingenious use of forefront technology. The designer gathered all of his runway show guests to Central Park to view a 60ft water screen 4D holographic runway show. Lauren partnered with MPC Creative to see his vision come to life.

“I really wanted to do something big for the new Polo Women’s brand – something set in the city — that felt modern. We returned to Central Park, a place I love, and captured the spirit of Polo with a truly innovative mix of fashion and technology,” said Ralph Lauren.

MPC Creative embodied his vision well. 

Via,  “At the helm, Creative Director David Estis of MPC Creative led a large team of MPC artists to create flawless transitions and design the rich visual narrative complete with fully CG cityscapes, artful storefronts, cobblestone streets lined with quaint brownstones and charming parks. From augmented CG set extensions such as the majestic Brooklyn Bridge, to elaborate layers of matte paintings, all told, the film consists of over 13,000 frames. Ralph Lauren SVP Creative Director Amir Mohammady and VP of Interactive Design Yong Choe worked closely with MPC under one roof at the MPC NYC studio, maximizing their collaborative creative efforts.”

The holographic video features models wearing SS15 designs as they walk through different cityscapes. Watch the video below to view the show in motion.
