The curatorial theme of Metaverse Fashion Week 2023
The curatorial theme for MVFW 2023 is “future heritage.” The theme aims to explore how digital fashion can be used to create new cultural heritage and traditions in virtual worlds.
The event’s organizers want to showcase the potential for digital fashion to create new cultural expressions and experiences that reflect the values, ideas, and traditions of different communities.
The theme is also an invitation to explore the role of digital fashion in shaping the future of cultural identity and heritage.
Interoperability and NFTs at Metaverse Fashion Week 2023
One of the core values of MVFW 2023 is interoperability. The event’s organizers are committed to showcasing the potential for different metaverses to work together and collaborate on cross-platform projects.
The interoperability theme will be highlighted in various ways during the event, including a cross-platform wearable design competition in collaboration with virtual-world platforms Spacial and Over.
The winners of the competition will be featured in a hybrid AR/IRL (in real life) catwalk at the four-day festival in Milan.
NFTs will also play a significant role in MVFW 2023. Brands can now link their external NFTs to their virtual clothing on Decentraland, a significant change from last year’s event.
Dolce & Gabbana, a previous and returning MVFW brand, highlighted this feature by linking its Disco Drip NFTs to the Decentraland wearable, allowing owners to wear it virtually.
The linkage also works with NFTs attached to physical products, simplifying how brands present avatar-ready digital twins of their real-world fashionistas.
The brands and organizations that will participate in Metaverse Fashion Week 2023
Several brands and organizations will participate in MVFW 2023, including Boson Protocol, a marketplace for so-called “phygital” goods. Boson Protocol participated in last year’s event and is returning to showcase its latest innovations in the phygital space.
Rubin Singer, a couture designer, is making a digital piece this year in collaboration with Asian designers. He is creating a digital twin of the physical garment that will be showcased at the event.
