"Making of" the Nicola Formichetti - CCP Collaboration.

Nicola Formichetti, internationally celebrated fashion director and editor (Mugler, Vogue Hommes Japan, UNIQLO, Lady Gaga collaborator) unveiled his BOFFO Building Fashion pop-up store beginning Sept. 9 2011 and open to the public for two weeks during NY Fashion week. It showcases a collaboration with CCP Games to render one of his designs in a fully interactive, real-time virtual catwalk experience at the event space. A true first of the kind in either the gaming or fashion industries.

Formichetti’s inspiring design has been fully realized into the virtual setting of EVE Online on a virtual avatar copy of signature model Rick Genest (AKA Rico the Zombie Boy) by the artists, programmers and animators at CCP Games using their own industry-leading technology.

This video is the “making of” that effort and includes interviews with Nicola Formichetti, Zombie Boy and members of the CCP team
