Holograms in fashion shows: Alexander McQueen, Diesel, & Target

I love fashion and . Using holograms in fashion shows is a unique and a very new concept. Right now, it just feels very hip and cool and that alone is a valid part of fashion. I’m looking forward to seeing a true fusion of the hologram and a fashion show, but integrating the with fashion has yet to be fully realized. So I’m quite excited about Target’s next fashion show! The fashion show will have no models. Instead, it will have holograms of clothes and accessories on a runway. The holograms will be projected in a section of Grand Central Station on November 6 and 7, repeated every 10 minutes from noon to midnight the first day and from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. the second day. It’s reported that more than a million people in NYC will view the show. I’ll post the video as soon as it’s available.
