TOMMY HILFIGER LAUNCHES FASHION GAME
Hilfiger Ventures, founded by fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger and Joe Lamastra, teams up with global free-to-play game publisher Tilting Point, to launch an interactive mobile fashion game using the latest AI technology.
Ahead of the game's launch in January 2024, Tommy Hilfiger shared, “My life's goal has been to make fashion more accessible. Given how many people engage in fashion through their phones, I thought there had to be a way to bring everyone together in one community, providing a more immersive experience."
FashionVerse uses Brandible's proprietary AI model to create photorealistic 3D avatars, settings and props, providing a virtual experience. Within the game, players take on design challenges to create perfectly curated fashion sets in Stylist mode or Trendsetter mode. Players can also share their creations, vote on other stylists' scenes, comment on favorite looks, win prizes and unlock new clothing styles while discovering the latest trends from real fashion brands.
