Top Moments

Williamsburg Hotel Models + Designers Fireside Chat

DIGITALAX hosted another event at the Williamsburg Hotel on Monday with another incredible turnout— from designers, to models, to financiers, to web3 enthusiasts and more! The fireside chat with Emma-Jane and Jonathan Spooner was a whole lot of fun and refreshing conversation about the real scale up with NFTs and the metaverse, detached from so much of the hype that we are bombarded with by traditional media.

Check out some photos below and stay tuned for the next one:

Realm Runway Lead Up

Things have been hectic leading up to the first Realm Runway event Feb 12th during NY Fashion Week. We have an upcoming dress rehearsal at LUME this Tuesday with all designers and models taking part in the show. If you are NYC local its essential you attend so that we can cover all final logistics!

Free Photoshoot Creative Slam Session NYC GMS/GDN

On Wednesday night we ran the very first Creative Slam Session (CSS) as a free photoshoot event. Creative Slam Sessions bring together artists, designers, models, musicians, photographers and more for a truly decentralised in-person exchange of creativity that can't be constrained. All content was CC0 and will be shared shortly to all designers and models… final curation and editing taking place today!

One of the most satisfying parts of this event, and definitely of the ones to come, is the unbridled creativity. There are no limits when passionate talents at the intersection of different fields and industries get together to do cool shit. No middlemen needed.

Open Source Avatars

Another exciting update from this week comes with the launch of the Open Source Avatar Elementals library. This is similar to the FGO for the fact that it represents one of the key axiomatic and composable on-chain modules for building out the Global Models Syndicate across the digital and physical realms. Read more here.

Focusing on the Next Web3 Fashion Week

DIGITALAX announced publicly the decline to Decentraland’s upcoming Fashion Week. Maintaining full alignment with web3 principles is essential for revolutionising fashion and every other complement industry in practice, not just through linguistics. CC0, open access, decentralised capital are just a few of the most essential components. You can read the full statement below.


The release of DIGIFIZZY Issue 9 and a special feature on all new Global Models Syndicate (GMS) members. You can read the full January release here and get ready for the Issue 10 as we are already in February!

Pose, Pose, Pose

The model marketplace will be launching this week and we couldn’t be more excited to have another direct avenue for models to onboard into the fast moving now reality of web3, NFTs, the metaverse and more.
