[Indonesia, February 27, 2024] – In an era where technology is rapidly advancing, we are witnessing significant changes in various industries, including the fashion industry. To strengthen knowledge and skills in utilizing the latest technology for the common good, an international empowerment initiative, “Fashion Tech Revolution: Virtual Reality Education for Community Empowerment,” has been implemented.

This initiative aims to introduce the important role of virtual reality (VR) technology in changing the paradigm of education and community empowerment, particularly in the fashion sector. Through a series of workshops, training sessions, and interactive sessions, participants will be equipped with a deep understanding of how VR can be used to educate, inspire, and empower local communities in the field of fashion.

“This initiative is not just about following the latest technology trends, but also about connecting technology with community empowerment,” said Rafly Maragani, initiator of the International Empowerment. “We believe that by bringing VR technology into the educational space and fashion industry, we can open up new opportunities, inspire creativity, and enhance accessibility for those who want to engage in this industry,” added Alif Rahman Hakim, initiator of the International Empowerment.

Participants will be invited to explore various VR applications relevant to fashion design, production, and marketing. They will learn how to use available VR tools and platforms to design, edit, and visualize their creative concepts in an engaging virtual environment.

“This initiative aims not only to provide technical knowledge about VR but also to encourage collaboration, innovation, and inclusion in the global fashion industry,” further added Rafly Maragani, initiator of the International Empowerment. “We invite all interested parties to join us in promoting this technological revolution for mutual prosperity.”
