Haute couture at fast fashion prices? Look no further than virtual clothing

Fancy slipping into a million-dollar dress for the modest sum of £65 (approx. US$83.90)? It doesn't sound possible, but Singapore-based luxury label Republiqe may have the solution with its virtual haute couture clothing. Could this economical and sustainable innovation gain ground as a new way of shopping?



While many ready-to-wear brands are trying to reinvent themselves -- notably embracing environmental issues and digital lifestyles -- others stand out completely with their innovative, almost futuristic offers. One such brand is Republiqe, a 100% digital clothing brand that only sells virtual luxury clothing.

How does it work?

This digital brand offers a taste of luxury at an affordable price, selling styles first designed in 2D then finalized via a 3D fashion tailoring platform. To slip into these garments (virtually), you simply upload a high-resolution photo of yourself, add a style to the basket then pay for your order like at any other online store. Once you've done that, a digital tailoring team fit the creation to your photo, making you into the belle (or beau) of the ball, ready to bag loads of likes on social media.

As well as giving more people the opportunity to strut their stuff on Instagram in haute couture gowns -- without having to shell out a year's salary -- the concept can also help shoppers reduce their environmental impact. Be done with outfits that end up abandoned at the back of the closet, as you can now build a virtual wardrobe with a minimal environmental footprint.

A million dollar outfit



One of the many options on the virtual shopping site is the "Million Dollar" look, featuring a nude mini-dress embellished with diamonds and silver details, a corset, diamond encrusted gloves, iridescent glasses, and matching embellished footwear. All of which is yours for just under US$85.

Republiqe offers other clothing styles too -- no less stylish, but perhaps a little more suitable for day-to-day virtual life. Options include paper bag pants, blazers, trench coats, biker jackets, T-shirts, corsets, various dresses and a selection of accessories. A plethora of possibilities for expanding your digital wardrobe responsibly and without breaking the bank.
