VR is finally poised for mainstream adoption in fashion, and for many designers, it has already become a new medium for creating the out-of-the-box customer experience. However, for fashion experts, long-term implementation initially might be costly, but it will help in creating a consumer-driven product and will serve as a vital step in solving fashion’s sustainability conundrum.
