Not only is crypto fashion on the rise, interconnecting technology with design is a future any designer is eager to take a chance on. According to the CFW press release, the creative economy forming through exchanges of NFTs and other related blockchains is “expected to be worth millions in the short term.”
Having digital shows is not new. In fact, it’s right on trend with the rest of fashion right now. Paris Fashion Week went digital this year, and many designers have set models on virtual catwalks to display their designs.
Crypto Fashion Week takes it a few steps further. Who says fashion is limited to tangible or physical materials? In the crypto-world, there are no boundaries.
