This international conference is organised by Augmented Fashion, a multidisciplinary research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council, UKRI. The research team is formed across Computing, Fashion and Textiles between Robert Gordon University, UK and Donghua University, China. The project facilitates interdisciplinary cultural knowledge exchange opportunities between academia and industry partners in the creative industries across the UK and China to bridge digital skills gaps and encourage innovative practice. Specifically, Augmented Fashion seeks to educate the consumer about the craftsmanship, heritage, value and sustainability of traditional fashion and textile products, using a variety of media, such as immersive technologies and Human- Computer Interactive (HCI) applications, to interact and engage with new generations of audiences and consumers. Fashion has embraced technology, with Immersive Technologies increasingly being used as powerful digital tools to create interactive consumer experiences to market designs. Given these recent technological developments, it is timely to reflect on their potential purpose within the context of a more sustainable global fashion and textile industry.

The International Conference on Augmented Fashion (ICAF 2022) invites submissions from established and early career researchers, postgraduates, industry, designers and educators regarding completed projects or work in progress. The conference provides a forum for the dissemination of research and creative practice surrounding fashion, textiles and immersive technologies. Submissions are encouraged that discuss, challenge and provoke debate in connection to one or more of the following themes:

Augmented Reality in Fashion and Textiles:
Augmenting physical resources, materiality and processes, technological innovations in production and supply chain, wearable technologies, 3D printing.
