Weave your way through the threads below to get all caught up on the culture from Dec 6th - Dec 12th 2021.
Emotional LOOK Airdrop
We took a transitional look through a range of emotions this week… mostly super happy, grateful and excited ones 😍… as Paola and Stella airdropped all LOOK holders this exclusive animated pattern NFT, a small derivate from their Transition through Emotion piece live here.
Jaw Dropping Visuals
Domingo dropped an absolutely jaw dropping visual montage of some of his most incredible works to date across the Whispers and Secrets collection. We could keep trying to come up with better combinations of words to describe this, but, just… watch it here… fashooooonnnnnn
The Web3 Patrons platform is now live and the first designer realms are up! This is a massive next leap for web3 fashion and the self sovereignty of every designer. And the best part of it all is that it is bringing value to an entire network of the most stylish, talent and multi-disciplinary designers on the planet. I mean… fashion designers who are savvy enough to know how to mint NFTs straight from personal smart contracts on the Block Explorer… 👀😱😱… yeah that’s just how the GDN roles…😎😎
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. Make sure to stay up to date across the releases in their realm channels in the DIGITALAX discord, and check out some of the most recent releases below!

Katriane is a womenswear designer with an extensive history of working in the apparel manufacturing industry. Driven by her passion for innovation, she embarked on her 3D journey in 2017 and have been working with Fashion houses across Asia, Europe, and USA to promote sustainable fashion 3D solutions. Her inspiration for design comes from a love for form & texture which translates into an aesthetic that uniquely accentuates and flatter the female silhouette. Fashion for Katriane is a means to experiment with elements of semiotics and intertextuality to generate a vocabulary where personality and identity can be freely outspoken.
