Omnis Inc. (HQ: Minato-ku, Tokyo; CEO: Toru Ueda) announces the launch of the ”AI Fashion Challenge”, the world’s first fashion contest to create future fashion designs using generative AI, on April 1, 2023 on its AI fashion platform “OpenFashion a first-of-its-kind fashion contest that uses generative AI to create the fashion designs of the future. The total prize money is $4,000 (approximately 500,000 yen), and anyone can participate by simply posting their AI-generated fashion design on Twitter. For more details, please see the event outline.
”OpenFashion” launched on March 14 as an AI fashion platform for developing various fashion-related services and brands, utilizing the latest technologies such as generative AI, virtual fashion, and web3.
And the AI Fashion Challenge, a fashion contest currently being held at OpenFashion, aims to explore the possibilities of fashion design using generative AI and open up a new world of fashion. With AI technology advancing at a remarkable pace, it is now possible for anyone to easily express their own unique design without having to possess any technology by utilizing AI image generation services such as “Midjourney”. This contest will utilize these latest technologies to generate designs, making it easy for anyone to participate.
It is expected that AI will propose new materials and designs for future fashion by utilizing the sensibilities that humans do not possess, and the designs created through AI will have a unique beauty different from those created through conventional manual work. We look forward to the birth of futuristic designs created through AI from all participants, as well as innovative and beautiful fashion designs that make full use of materials.
Examples of works (all created by Midjourney)
Prompts for examples of this work are now available on the contest’s special website.
