'Tools for future creator' is a project that allows the fashion design to be re-imagined in an Augmented Reality future. Appliqué is an ecosystem utilizing AR layers to create added value to physical clothing. This ecosystem includes a platform for fashion designers to design AR effects and a platform for viewers to view live streams, comment, and share their AR fashion.

Appliqué brings AR fashion alive,

with tools for designer to create

and platforms for users to consume.

Tools for Fashion Designers

Designing both physical garment and the AR layer requires a new working flow for fashion designers. A toggled view ensured the smoothness of working back and forth in both physical and AR.

Toggle to AR Design View and add AR contents on top of physical garments

Once finished the design, upload and publish

Platform for Consumers

A web, in addition to the mobile and the wearable, hosts all the feeds of

AR fashion for users to share, comment and purchase the garment.

It is also a virtual runway show.
