The partnership will allow consumers to purchase items from the Hilfiger store as non-fungible tokens (NFTs) during the fashion event. Interestingly, customers will also be to convert NFTs purchased in the metaverse to physical products at Tommy Hilfiger store.

Amber Jae Slooten, Fabricant’s co-founder in an interview said the Metaverse Fashion Week would save a lot of valuable resources.

“If this fashion week facilitates a place and time for people to come together online and not have to fly across the world and create all of those physical items/waste to produce 10-minute fashion shows, this would save a lot of valuable resources,” Slooten said.

The finale show will reportedly be presented by Auroboros whose collection ‘Biomimicry’ will be auctioned as a series of NFTs. It is also important to note that the Metaverse Fashion Week is free to attend for Decentraland users. However, customers will need an Ethereum wallet to make a purchase.
