DeMODE at NYFW: A Fusion of Fashion, Art, and Innovation by MetaBurnett

MetaBurnett Shines at New York Fashion Week with the DeMODE Experience

Last September 10th, 2023, marked a milestone in the evolution of fashion and technology as MetaBurnett, in collaboration with Modernist, introduced DeMODE at the illustrious New York Fashion Week. Celebrating the 15th anniversary of Nolcha Shows at Mercedes-Benz Manhattan, DeMODE wasn't just another fashion showcase; it was a transformative experience that redefined industry standards through the integration of innovative technologies and artistic expression.

A New Epoch in Fashion and Tech

DeMODE took center stage, mesmerizing attendees with its unique blend of high fashion and cutting-edge technology. The event featured NFC-enabled garments that unlocked exclusive 3D content, creating an interactive experience that brought each piece to life beyond the physical runway. This digital leap was powered by MetaBurnett’s collaboration with technology partners like and R-Pac, utilizing their advanced Twin Tag Technology.

The Creative Visionaries Behind DeMODE

Under the creative direction of Kelly Max, founder of Modernist, and Emily Burnett, founder and CEO of MetaBurnett, DeMODE showcased a roster of talented designers including Romeo Hunte, Pamela Dennis, and Renee Cafaro Atelier Public Label. These designers, alongside rising stars such as Merci Dupre and Stephanie Dillon, presented their creations in an innovative format that captivated an audience of fashion aficionados and industry insiders.

Artistry Beyond Apparel

Elevating the experience, celebrity hairstylist Ted Gibson and makeup artist Buffy Hernandez brought their artistic expertise to DeMODE, styling models in ways that complemented the futuristic themes of the show. Their efforts, inspired by Modernist art, added an extra layer of sophistication and allure to the presentation, reinforcing the show’s status as a beacon of luxury and innovation.

An Interstellar Journey for Modernist Art

In an exciting turn of events, the art showcased at DeMODE is set to embark on an unprecedented journey to the moon. Curated by SpaceBlue, these pieces will travel aboard a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket as part of the Lunaprise Moon Museum. This cosmic initiative not only highlights the expansive ambitions of the DeMODE collaborators but also sets a new frontier for artistic expression.
