More and more people talk about Tech & Fashion, although usually it involves a startup that sells fashion items online. LA Fashion Week reunited a different level of fashion-tech collaboration, between independent fashion designer Camelia Skikos and Fyusion, Inc., a startup that creates spatial photographs, using 3-D processing algorithms, co-founded by robotics specialist Radu Rusu. Both are based (where else?..) in San Francisco, California.
RADU RUSU, CEO & Co-Founder, Fyuse, Inc.:
It is precisely at this level, of duality and double bind, that the fyuse concept merged with Camelia Skikos fashion design philosophy. The uniqueness of a fyuse (as opposed to still photography or video) resides in its dual ability to surprise the viewer, while simultaneously giving him or her full control of the image. The result is symbiosis in which fyuse reveals new perceptions and meanings of Skikos’ design, as the viewer changes angles with his or her finger on the screen.
One of Skikos' greatest collections is actually inspired by nothing else than the streets of San Francisco - click here for tons of great pictures and another amazing video from Milos Vlaski.
