The live, 3D-virtual fashion show will be created with high-definition holograms, allowing the clothes and accessories to walk, dance, and interact.

The model-less fashion show is powered by Musion Systems Limited. These are the guys who also did the fantastic Gorillaz live appearance at the MTV Awards in Lisbon 2005.The Target Model-less Fashion Show will employ an illusionary technique that uses Eyeliner foil to give two dimensional images the illusion of depth. The installations are recorded, played back and projected in true High Definition giving the holograms unprecedented quality and clarity.

The Target Model-less Fashion Show will feature men’s, women’s, bridal, and maternity collections from Bowie by Keanan Duffty for Target, Erin Fetherston™ for Target, Isaac Mizrahi for Target, Liz Lange for Target, and Mossimo for Target as well as jewelry, handbags, and shoes from Dominique Cohen for Target and HOLLYWOULD for Target.
The Target Model-less Fashion Show will take place on Tuesday, November 6th, and Wednesday, November 7th, in Vanderbilt Hall at Grand Central Terminal on E. 42nd Street between Park and Lexington Avenues.

I love technology, but hey, I prefer seeing real fashion models like Gisele Bündchen and not some hologram.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
