London Fashion Week Collab with Jens Laugesen
LONDON, September 2022
META\SENS was a digital fashion collaboration project by Jens Laugsen for London Fashion Week SS23. The renowned fashion designer set out to explore the meaning of visual hybrid languages and align his work with the metaverse or the metamodern in-between arena.
Jens reached out to a group of talented digital artists to explore the digital process and get inspiration from multiple in-between design outcomes. The digital designers were asked to work individually generating variations from two iconic garments previously designed by Laugesen. Giancarlo Pazzanese designed two of the nine looks that were selected for this collaborative collection.
Building on the meta-redefinition of hybrid space and in-between garment objects, this project juxtaposes Jens's couture craft with new 3D design methodologies.
The resulting collection was exhibited as a video work in a virtual gallery space during London Fashion Week SS23.

dis_placed virtual fashion collection now on sale at DressX
METAVERSE, November 2021
This digital-only collection is made of 6 looks designed to be used in virtual spaces. The texture maps in this collection have been displaced creating glitches, volumes, spikes and new materials.
Digital fashion is having its moment. One way to start wearing digital clothes is through online garderobe stores that will fit any garment of your choice to your photos. The garment always fits, and it is the most sustainable way to post an extravagant, casual or high-tech look with the least impact on the planet.
Anybody can try the garments of the dis_placed collection, and wear them via DressX.com.
