IMVU is the latest to create hype around these NFT’s everyone’s been talking about.
On the 27th and 28th of May, IMVU will be hosting a digital fashion show and showcase. This will be in combination with seven of the world’s top emerging designers, and here at The Next Cartel, we are loving the idea!
The goal of this event? Creating a social metaverse.
For those who don’t know IMVU, it is a social platform where the youth can create their own avatars. One of their favourite activities is then dressing their favourites ones up. The platform has a community of millions of fashion-oriented fans who either create, and/or buy, and/or sell digital items.
Following the recent market explosion of NFT’s, artists, musicians, and game developers, have all been selling unique and rare items that are authenticated using blockchain, the secure and transparent digital ledger. Quite a lot has been going on in this world in fact, but worry not, if you’d like a little recap on a few of the things that have taken place in the NFT universe, check it out here, or here, or here.
The digital showcase will include designers Mowalola, Collina Strada, Freak City, Mimi Wade, Gypsy Sport, and more who will debut their designs and collections, transforming the traditional runway into a ultramodern show.
Starting Friday may 28th, all of the digital items showcased will be available for purchase. Additionally, select exclusive items will be up for auction on IMVU’s OpenSea marketplace. These pieces can then be worn buy the owner’s IMVU avatar as a one-of-a-kind item.
This digital world gives designers another outlet for exposure, while opening doors that have never been opened before, it will bring fashion design into the metaverse in ways that have not been explored until now.
The event will feature custom digital rooms built on the IMVU platform for designers to debut pre-collections, and other digital items exclusive to the digital universe.
