Marc Jacobs - Louis Vuitton dresses 3D Japanese superstar

Louis Vuitton has dressed a virtual superstar.

The fashion emporium's unusual latest project saw creative director Marc Jacobs create four funky looks for computer-generated Japanese pop sensation Hatsune Miku to wear on stage.

Hatsune is a 3D 'Volcanoid', a holographic projection with an artificial voice, who performs to sold-out stadiums.

The virtual singer is starring in a new opera stage show, 'The End', and was in need of a brand new wardrobe.

Hatsune is branching out from her usual school uniform attire to don four checkerboard-inspired looks from Louis Vuitton's spring/summer 2013 collection.

Her look will be finished off with ultra feminine hair bows and statement handbags.

According to Global Grind, the show is going international after a successful run in Japan and is heading to Paris in November.

Marc is famed for his bold moves in the fashion industry and recently revealed the most important thing about being a designer is trusting your instincts.

He said: ''I never looked at the down side. It taught me that you have to trust your instincts and do what's in your heart.

''I didn't set out to be a rebel but there's a kind of integrity that's much more rewarding than any kind of negativity.

''You sleep better at night when you do what you feel rather than doing something you think someone else might like.''
