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 Nov 1st- 7th 2021.

Top Moments

Gaga Tailoring.

Alexander Kurmanin tailored some awesome outfits for a Lady Gaga Bloody Mary fan based video. You can check out the awesome 3D digital fashion below!

A Big Pay Off for Digital.

Mutani.io, led by Shayli Harrison, was granted 50,000 Euros from the City of Antwerp to further build out their vision and develop digital processes for creating amazing game-ready fashion garments. This was in response to a wider call put out by the city to further support innovative fashion projects. It’s an amazing achievement, excellent news for Mutani and the future of metaverse fashion as a whole!

FUTR E*SHCK Launches.

KALAU also released some BIG news with the FUTR E*SHCK collaborative creation coming out of Alterrage. FUTR E*SHCK combines digital fashion, eco-activism, and luxury design, with a goal to use URL to inspire IRL change.

E-waste, or electronic waste, encompasses electrical and electronic equipment that’s outdated, unwanted, or broken. That means everything from smartphones to end-of-life refrigerators. Basically, anything that runs on electricity that you’ve decided to get rid of. Globally, we only recycle 10% of our e-waste, a number that’s as shocking as it is depressing. As for the 90% we don’t recycle, it ends up getting landfilled, incinerated, or illegally traded.

Inspired to bring attention to this cause, Alterrage partnered with three motion graphic artists, NGHTWLK (Matthew Davies), YELLOSESAME (Jeffrey Huang), and MSISTEMA (Marc Ferrer) to build a world filled with larger than life, electronic-inspired scenes and fashion; paired with an informative call to action.

GDN ✈️ NFT NYC.

Some of the GDN members met IRL at NFT NYC— forget men in black, these ladies will define the new style without the need for memory wiping devices —with Di.Universe, Karina from Infinito, and Catherinetheworst.

Artem Leaves Nothing On the Table.

Artem showed us how web3 fashion is really done— get red pilled & go all in or nothing. We salute you!

Wear to Earn 30,000+ Views.

Wear 2 Earn— the fashion derivative of Play 2 Earn, where your in-game NFT skins become more than just a medium for self expression, but now also unlock yield, access and utility directly in game— got some time in the spotlight and was picked up by a well known Spanish gaming NFT Youtuber. Gaming x Fashion just got so much more global.


Welcome New Designers!

We also had new designers join us on-chain, where each was sent their official GDN Membership NFT to represent their first steps into the DAO and unlocking all the cool access and levels up that come with being part of the GDN and the amazing community surrounding web3 fashion.

A massively warm welcome to;

  • Flavia Bon
    • Design Developer IRL | Digital Designer URL Native in Fashion and Product Design - Pattern Making - Tailoring - Prototyping ______________________________________________ The future is digital and this is the path I want to go. Eager to put all my energy to combine my physical and digital skills and further develop them to join the ride through the Metaverse.
  • Keeping Distance
    • Keeping Distance is a Luxury Fashion Label escaping reality & rendering into the Metaverse. We like to call it "a trip to our vortex" where all things are possible & being in-touch with the source is your greatest gift. We will take you on a journey of what it is like to step into luxurious worlds where highest vibrations are met. Our garments aren't only meant to be fashionable but to also connect frequencies to activate natural healing, positive energy & create an experience. This will be expressed through line work, patterns, colors, & binaural beats throughout the digital design process & NFTs. Follow along, let's connect together! & remember, We Are One.
  • Miranda Marquez
    • 3D printed fashion got me into digital fashion, and digital fashion into the metaverse, now trying to connect digital wearables to printable clothing, overcoming the tension between physical and digital. Let's rethink the fashion paradigm!

If any of you have any questions, queries or need help navigating the depths of web3 fashion, the open metaverse and more, let us know in the GDN or DIGITALAX discords! We are so excited for the journey ahead!
