Queens of the Metaverse, the first mixed reality drag show, will see three aspiring British LGBTQ+ designers create showstopping metaverse drag looks using Meta’s VR and AR technologies.
The show will see Blu Hydrangea (winner of RuPaul’s Drag Race: UK vs. The World), Tia Kofi (RuPaul’s Drag Race Season 2) and Adam All (one of the UK’s most prominent ‘Drag Kings’) appear as the headline drag acts of the show.
The show will see drag meet Meta’s VR and AR technologies as the headline drag acts and design partners share details of their original bespoke looks in the virtual 'Horizon Workrooms', where the limits of the real world (like available materials) are non-existent.
The Meta’s virtual workspace will allow contestants to interact via VR headsets, sharing creative briefs and mood boards.
Designing for Blu Hydrangea is Nwora Emenike, a queer, non-binary stylist. Creating for Tia Kofi is Sal Mohammed, a queer, genderfluid NHS worker and life coach who has a passion for drag.
Designing for Adam All is Christie Lau, a non-binary Central Saint Martins graduate whose work blends physical and digital fashion.
