Top Moments

Patrons & Secondary Marketplace Platforms Live

Last week was filled with engineering deployments in web3 fashion. We had the patrons platform go live, where now anyone can directly champion indie web3 fashion labels across different NFT utility tiers, and also the first web3 fashion secondary marketplace go live. This is a big feat for the industry and ecosystem, as we continue to increase market support and activity for the buy side.

Alana & Bancor Stream

Alana blew us out of the water this week with her amazing Bancor NFT, airdropped to those that tuned into the educational DeFi 101 workshop hosted by Bancor on Sunday. A huge shout out to Stella Achenbach for organising and running the entire event! Get ready for more DeFi x Fashion goodness from Alana, the digi queen of web3. Check out the full NFT design here.

Realm Runways

The Realm Runway events are one of the latest initiatives out of the DIGITALAX and GDN Ecosystems. They will be a mix between hybrid digital and physical fashion runway events that will showcase some of the latest collections from the GDN and Realm Founders, as well as incorporate the entire modeling, make up artistry and hair styling scene… more information to come soon as we prepare for the first event to take place early Feb during NY Fashion Week! 😍😱

Mass Open Source FGO Minting

There is an exciting Bancor collaborative project we are working on for their Bancor V3 NFT airdrop… and for this we are calling all designers to mass mint to the FGO libraries!! We need as many prints as we can get to make this project truly spectacular. Get printing and minting!

Whispers of Secrets

Domingo released the first installment of the Whisper/Secret collection and one part is held by the Web3 Fashion Treasury across DIGITALAX and GDN. This collection is a must look, you can view it all here.

Twitches and Twitches

Metahumans of the verse got some digital dressing goodness on Twitch this week. You can replay the live stream conducted by Hafid and Stella on the GDN Twitch channel here.

Phoebe Member NFT Name Vote

Phoebe Heess took to the Twitter polls this week to collectively name their governance and utility tokens…. and we have to say, the outcome really was totally cute. Who said a group of internet phrens couldn’t get together and change the world 😎😋
