Question DisplayPort laptop and USB-C DisplayPort Alternate Mode Display

I have a laptop with a mini DisplayPort connector. I've also just bought Epson's Moverio Display Glasses, basically mini-OLED displays in the lenses of a pair of glasses, so you can see your laptop screen as a heads-up display in the glasses. These connect to a USB-C port (if your laptop has one) and use DisplayPort Alternate Mode.

I've been trying to find an adapter which can use my laptop's DisplayPort connector to drive these glasses, but all the adapters seem to go the other way: from a USB-C port on the laptop to a display/monitor which uses DisplayPort.

Is it even possible to do what I'm trying (use the laptop's DisplayPort connector to drive a display which uses DisplayPort Alternate Mode over USB-C). If so, is there an adapter which can do the conversion?
