Weave your way through the threads below to get all caught up on the culture from Nov 29th - Dec 5th 2021.

Top Moments

Miami Dcentral & Art Basel

This edition’s top moments is almost entirely dedicated to Miami! It’s safe to say that GDN rocked the sun drenched streets of Miami and took web3 fashion directly to the centre stage. We’ve curated some of our favourite snaps and memories from the week. Every Global Designer Network member, including those attending IRL and those their in spirit digitally, put in so much love, soul, dedication and heart to making the DIGITALAX/GDN Booth the best it could ever have hoped to be. Seriously, the amazing feats that we have accomplished so far are something we should all be so proud of and so excited to continue. GDN LFG!! <3

New Digis joined the Web3 Gang

Some new digitals and phygitals joined the gang this week as we continue to build out native cyber fashion realms and also release the Web3 Models Realm that will include both IRL and native digital modeling happenings under Realm Runways and Seasonal Collection Lookbooks. Check out more on that here.

Meet Yax… a phygital alter ego summoned by Hafid!

Miami Fashion Heist

As much as we are thrilled by and heard from so many people in Miami about how amazing it is at how far we have come in such a short time and how quickly web3 is advancing we are not as far along as we need to be. We aren’t fully broken away from the old traumatic world and not everyone gets that better is possible yet, which means that there is still a continued lag of old behaviors.

One example of that, that hit close to home, was at the end of Dcentral, where three physical pieces handmade by three of the Global Designer Network designers, were physically front run in the night, where when we arrived to the venue after the convention was finished (i.e. the following day) to finalise packing up we found that these three pieces were missing.

Read the full story here if you missed it… and how we are turning this around to prove out the power of NFTs with a web3 native auction event… where the DIGITALAX Treasury is voting to be a first bidder!

Across the Realms

Each week every designer is releasing rich content across medium, mirror, twitter and more as they build out their realm and forge their path ahead.

Welcome New Designers!

A massively warm welcome to;

  • Alma Andrea HF
    • Hi! I am an Industrial Designer turned digital fashion designer from Mexico City. I love all things digital and I even own my own consulting firm on digital entrepreneurship for women. I´m so excited to be part of the reshaping of the industry because I've been in it for more than 10 years, as I co-founded a fashion brand called Ethnology, but I think it's time to change paradigms and look forward to the new digital horizons. That's why I recently founded my digital fashion brand called Elemento Studio which I showcase in GDN marketplace, hoping that we become stronger as a community everyday!
