Tommy Hilfiger’s FashionVerse is coming!

The future is (almost) here! Hilfiger Ventures, a private investment vehicle co-founded by Tommy Hilfiger, has teamed up with leading game publisher Tilting Point to bring FashionVerse, an interactive fashion game, to mobile devices. The game will launch next month on all iOS and Android devices via their respective App Stores, as well as to Netflix’s 247 million members who will have FashionVerse included in their memberships on iOS and Android devices through the Netflix mobile app.

FashionVerse originated as an idea from Hilfiger, who wanted to scale fashion through an immersive, community-based game that capitalizes on the most current technology. According to a statement: “In FashionVerse, players take on design challenges to create perfectly curated fashion sets in Stylist mode or mood boards in Trendsetter mode, each of which other players vote upon. Players can share their creations, vote on other stylists’ scenes, comment on favorite looks, win rewards and unlock new clothing styles, all while discovering the latest trends from real-world fashion brands. Utilizing the latest AI technology, FashionVerse brings players’ creative styling to life with a photorealistic set of 3D virtual spaces and a diverse cast of models. Diversity and inclusion are cornerstones of FashionVerse, which features models across a wide range of size diversity, ethnicities and abilities.”
