As explained on their website:
FRI’s goal is to research and develop bio-renewable, sustainable, multi-channel production pipelines for the fashion industry, which will change the way the industry handles raw materials, processed materials, product design methodology, and product tracking technology.
FRI has developed a patent-pending design methodology and new technology infrastructure using virtual worlds as the user interface. This infrastructure reduces related fashion industry production landfill wastes and by-products to up to 60% over traditional fashion production methods and cut time-to-market for products by as much as six weeks. This infrastructure is delivered both as an SaaS solution for small apparel design houses and as an enterprise installation for large design companies.
Since 2008, they have provided more than 60,000 new users with orientation services in their entry portal in Second Life on their region Shengri La™.
**Several of the Buffalo State College student designers will be featuring Second Life in their Runway 3.0 collection presentations.**
