Virtual Fashion Archive

The Virtual Fashion Archive is an online space established by Superficial to bring archival fashion garments beyond the constraints of their physical form, and into the added digital dimensions of motion, interaction, and participation.

There are countless rare and significant fashion garments housed in museums and private collections around the world. Through meticulous documentation, advanced garment virtualization and fabric simulation the Virtual Fashion Archive brings these amazing designs back into the poetics of motion, and broadens access for a global audience to appreciate and interact with them in ways that haven’t been possible until now.
