Read time: half a pizza
This is a weekly newsletter brought to you by a former fashion editor, aka me, Lina. I will cover digital wearables and their role in gaming and fashion.
The Wearables Daily feature and acknowledge all industry talents and tell their stories.
I know. Blockchain, NFTs, Web3, and Metaverse - are the most popular buzzwords now on the Internet. But the thing is, while it's buzzing, some brands and creators are really working on it.
I talked with many founders and creators, and I have noticed that they all talk about interoperability. They all say it's an inevitable promise o what the term Metaverse holds. Until we get there, many brands and creators are joining the space. Sometimes they're just experimenting; sometimes, it's part of a bigger marketing strategy. Either way, they're here, selling NFTs and participating in virtual life. Today, I gathered a few pieces of news that, I believe, will impact how we navigate Web3.
See you next Friday - I will be your ultimate guide to an upcoming Metaverse Fashion Week. :)
DressX Raises $15 Million
The funds raised will be deployed with a focus on the interoperability of its digital fashion assets, improving the performance of the DressX app and NFT marketplace, growing the community, and further partnerships with social and gaming platforms across traditional media and the metaverse.
