Short Synopsis: Inspired as a software update for the iconic Antwerp Six,

The Antwerp Cyber-Six is named as an homage to the six graduates (1980) of the Antwerp Fashion Department, who became the most influential avant-garde collective in fashion history.

In order to re-ignite this legacy, digital fashion network MUTANI with support from the City of Antwerp invited six Antwerp-based creative zealots to blaze new virtual trails: Brandon Wen, Flora Miranda, Max Rittler, Nadav Perlman, Shayli Harrison and Stefan Kartchev.

Selecting only the most unreal - of real archival looks from each designer, MUTANI collaborated with ior50 Studio to translate six digital fashion silhouettes on six custom avatars.

Conceived to inspire new in-game identities, each assumes their own name, backstory strengths, weaknesses and of course, a few spells and weapons.

This animation introduces each of these Cyber-Six characters as they spawn into a custom built environment, modeled on the CERN particle accelerator - come portal to new worlds. The protagonists (and some antagonists) are set in motion to the tailor-made synth sounds of Belgian electronic music composer, Roman Hiele.

The Antwerp Cyber-Six is a project that recklessly traverses the lines between fashion, games, fine-art and cinema. Serving high-creative legacies and talent to brand new audiences.

All to make an avant-garde mark in the metaverse.
