Fashion Research Institute (FRI) develops products and systems for the fashion industry that sweepingly address traditionally wasteful, environmentally unsound and unsafe business and production methods.
Using web 3.0 and virtual worlds to solve real world issues
FRI has developed new technology infrastructures using web 3.0 and virtual worlds, that will reduce related fashion industry production landfill wastes and
by-products to up to 1/3 over traditional fashion production methods.
Our goal is to research and develop bio-renewable, sustainable, multi-channel production pipelines for the fashion industry, which will change the way the industry handles raw materials, processed materials, product design methodology, and product tracking technology.
In addition, FRI is currently developing a method to distribute digital assets generated from its unique virtual world design application, Black Dress Design Studio. The Fashionable Grid™ enables designers of both apparel and avatar apparel to develop new revenue streams through this service.
