What are fashion NFTs?

Posted on 26th March 2022

Non-fungible Tokens, popularly referred to as “NFTs”, are non-fungible (i.e. distinctive) digital assets. NFTs are digital items made as images, music, video, or 3D fashion file types before getting minted (connected) to a blockchain network. They are far deeper than the usual cryptocurrencies. NFTs are controlled and validated as digital products via digital records or blockchains. They are kept in e-wallets in just the same sense as cryptocurrencies, such as Ethereum and other tokens, and they serve as good objects sold in the digital environment. NFTs provide a secure method for the sale of any item of clothing since no two tokens can be precisely the same, which distinguishes them from other cryptocurrencies in that they are fungible. When an individual chooses to buy Ethereum for instance, it has the same value as another person’s Ethereum somewhere else.

Clothing is a piece of art, meticulously crafted after a long process of fitting, collecting materials, cutting, pattern development, and hand stitching. These are the heydays of custom-made apparel, each piece lovingly constructed to be loved and passed down the generations.

Fashion publications and specifications were once exclusively released in prints. It just never existed if it can’t be found on the pages of the upcoming edition. We now live in an era where any clothing brand with a narrative or an idea may express it to the public via a blog article, runway shows, social media platforms, etc.

The digital shopping experience has now evolved into a rich ecosystem that integrates different online platforms, and digital environments are becoming borderless, opening up a plethora of creative possibilities that are impossible to recreate on-ground.

The emergence of NFTs into the fashion industry does seem increasingly likely, particularly after this snappy ‘phrase’ captured the collective attention of the arts, musical, and movie sectors over the last year. From street style to classic fashion, it has swiftly invaded nearly every aspect of the fashion industry.

Fashion NFTs

The fashion industry has put in a lot of work recently to digitally convert and convert fashion to the digital world. Non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and blockchain technology are being used by brands to attract, authenticate, and engage with customers all around the world.

According to Gucci, big fashion businesses would utilize non-fungible tokens “in time” (NFTs). It’s an intriguing puzzle for firms who want to cash in on the NFT trend but don’t want to follow others in mass-producing comparable items.

Highlights of some Fashion NFTs

In February 2021, Gucci became the first premium house to venture into the world of NFTs. The NFT of the legendary Italian fashion company was influenced by their “Aria” series in conjunction with Alessandro Michele, rather than being patterned after fashion products, and it was sold for 25,000 million dollars.

Another digital version of Gucci’s Dionysus bag, for instance, was offered on Roblox in May 2021 for roughly $4,115, rendering it more valuable than the original bag itself. Balenciaga’s Fall 2021 design was also shown through the custom video game Afterworld: The Age of Tomorrow, created by Unreal Engine. LVMH and Riot Games worked on a League of Legends capsule collection as early as 2019.

“Louis the Game,” an adventure-style game in which players must travel around Vivienne’s dollhouse, was also released by Louis Vuitton, combining fashion and technology. The quest included 30 concealed NFTs and 10 NFTs created in partnership with prominent NFT artist “Beeple.”

During Venice Fashion Week, D&G debuted the 9-piece collection, which sold for USD5.56 million at auction. Each NFT included not just the NFT but also physical copies of the things and unique access to D&G events for buyers.

Furthermore, UNXD, a high-end NFT platform, intends to establish a USD10 million “Culture Fund” to encourage the use of NFTs in the fashion industry. Several examples of how digital channels are utilized to market and sell digital apparel; thus, the list appears to be endless.

If you’re wondering how to buy NFTs, there are three basic steps to follow.

  • Since most NFTs are ethereum-based tokens, buy Ethereum.
  • Connect your cryptocurrency wallet, e.g., MetaMusk, to your preferred marketplace, such as Opensea.
  • Then go out and get your NFT.

Conclusion

Fashion houses can employ NFTs as a promotional gimmick. They bring them into the internet age and may appeal to a wider, young audience, with companies like Nike, Louis Vuitton, Adidas, and others in the apparel industry potentially benefiting greatly from the NFT buzz. Employing the NFT marketplace might also be a useful advertising platform for new garment businesses, exposing them to a larger audience while also generating more revenue than traditional sales methods.

You might want to look at the fashion brands you admire if you think NFTs are solely for the world’s painters, designers, and Picassos. Because, aside from the viral digital art pieces, fashion is the only thing that everyone can appreciate in the real world aside from the regular NFTs’ art.
