The Thread Weekly is your best source for a quick debrief across the latest news, actions, events and happenings in web3 fashion, the open metaverse and beyond. It’s curated and published by DIGITALAX and the Global Designer Network.
Weave your way through the threads below to get all caught up on the culture from Dec 20th - Dec 26th 2021.
Well…. this thread is a little late 😱😂 …. it is that time of year and although all designers have been keeping busy, sometimes its good to unstitch a little 😆 Either way, happy holidays, merry christmas and happy new year to the entire web3 fashion community! Thank you for all being so admirable, inspiring, hard working and pioneering… it’s really the biggest pleasure to be part of this community and at the heart of both manifesting and witnessing this revolution. Bring on 2022!
Both Keeping Distance and ALTERRAGE sent off their very first Realm NFT airdrops to lucky community members! These were both minted on-chain by the designers with their very own dedicated ERC-721 smart contracts and all metadata hashed and stored with IPFS. A big milestone for the web3 fashion community! 😍 Congrats! Flavia Bon was caught repping the Alter filter. 👀
Buying directly into the heart of indie web3 fashion just got even easier and way more savvy with the launch of the Collector DAOs sector on the Patrons platform. Now, through the DIGITALAX governance forum, anyone can propose for a new collector or buy side DAO to be launched.
This is massive news for the community and an extensive mechanism for continuing to expand the market and further decentralise the capital stack.
Collector DAOs can be formed on specific to broader reaching topics. For example, maybe it focuses on cultivating VR metaverse web3 fashion, or maybe its focused on supporting a particular cluster of upcoming indie designer realms also listed on the patrons platform.
Emma was interviewed for the latest Rabbit Hole podcast to wrap up their season 0 and dive deep into all things open metaverse… even to the specifics of describing the life of a 16 year old in this new world. You can check out the latest episode here.
Some more sweet sweet style was spread across the DeFi portals this week, with the DIGITALAX x Bancor x Link drip being repped IRL…. stay tuned for some more surprise Bancor drip being released shortly in prep for V3 👀😜

Check out the latest Web3 Tailors Podcast where we sat down with Cesh! Cesh came into fashion through web3 and a passion for the principles of decentralisation, open source and alternative perspectives. He is a nexus for the Global Designer Network community and full of amazing inspiration and ideas, running weekly Realm calls with designers, onboarding new members and guiding them through this vast and sometimes overwhelming new landscape. He is also the founder of the Plug Life Realm and bringing new creators from the sex positive communities into web3.

We couldn’t call ourselves a truly authentic web3 crypto community if we didn’t round out with some in-house designed degen style memes 😂… Enjoy…..😂
