This is a report on 'FASHION MEETS DIGITAL', an exhibition event held at Hankyu Department Store in Osaka recently from February 26 to March 4, 2014, where MONOCIRCUS' items were featured, exhibited and sold.
In the large event hall on the 9th Floor of Hankyu Department Store, MONOCIRCUS had a 12-square-metre space in which we installed a simple wooden wall panel to display our packaged items with a large table on the side with our samples for visitors to touch, hold and try on.
The display panel has been specially fabricated to our design specifications for this event.
A simple video presentation of our items is being played in loop along with presentations of the other exhibits on the large LED screen in this event hall.
Other exhibits included digitally printed fabrics made into dresses, umbrellas, bags and other fashion items, along with digitally printed nail salon, virtual fitting experiential exhibit as well as 3D printing demonstration.
The exhibition was attended by a large number of visitors and attracted quite a bit of attention from the media.
It has been an honor and priviledge that we were given an opportunity like this to feature our work and we are very glad and thankful for this.
This opportunity came upon us when representatives from Hankyu discovered us at the Tokyo Designers Week 2013 in October last year. And this recent event in Osaka actually resulted in a new opportunity that is going to bring MONOCIRCUS to Tokyo this April!
