True Colors FASHION”, directed by media artist Yoichi Ochiai, is a diversity fashion show in which 11 teams of models, tech companies, and fashion brands walk the runway and reveal their production process through interviews. It will be distributed on the official youtube channel of True Colors Festival from 1pm(JST) on May 30, 2021.
From fashion created with the model’s body as the starting point, the show expands the use of technology that is close to the body, such as prosthetic legs and wheelchairs, through fashion, and considers how to create adaptive clothing that responds to the diversity of everyone’s body.
