Web3 Fashion Education
The School of Visual Arts— one of the top NYC art schools— is getting more into the digital fashion mix, where F₃Manifesto is teaching weekly classes to the students on everything CLO3D and web3/NFTs. Although the design tools are important, at the end of the day, what’s more important is how we use them to accomplish what we most desire to create— and this is exactly what this class teaches.
