We are very excited to announce that we will be taking over the photo studio at Graduate Fashion Week on Saturday 30 May!
Using the Xbox Kinect infrared laser scanner and the latest 3D scanning software, we will be asking sitters to remain still for up to 2 minutes, as individuals or in groups, whilst we capture their likeness. A 15 second animated video will then be sent directly to the sitter(s) to share to their own social media outlets. Sitters can decide from a variety of materials to be rendered in - whether burning chrome, oil or others - to encourage individuality and self expression through a new type of portrait sitting.
We have been experimenting with 3D scanning for over 15 years to capture the likes of Daphne Guinness, Kanye West, Naomi Campbell and the Victoria's Secret Angels for projects in music, advertising and editorial thresholds. Graduate Fashion Week trustee, Hilary Alexander OBE has been the first to be 3D scanned by SHOWstudio for this project, see her film on the @OfficialGFW Instagram page now!
Guests with tickets to the exhibition or catwalk shows on Saturday 30 May have the opportunity to take part in the activities with SHOWstudio on the day on a first come first serve basis, so don't hesitate to drop by!
Tickets for Graduate Fashion Week are available here.
