What is NFT fashion and is it worth paying for?
Gucci recently sold a NFT fashion version of its Dionysus bag on Roblox Corp.’s platform as for about $4,115. That’s more than the price of the physical item. Kering SA stablemate Balenciaga presented its Fall 2021 collection within a playable video game. All the way back in 2019, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton SE released a capsule collection for Riot Games Inc.’s League of Legends. ￼ The virtual economy is “one of the greatest economic opportunities of our generation,” John Egan, CEO of L’Atelier BNP Paribas, said in an email interview.
These worlds might be virtual, but the money backing them is very real. In April, Epic announced a $1 billion funding round to support its “long-term vision for the metaverse,” while BNP Paribas expects in-game spending on items like digital clothes and character upgrades to grow to $129 billion in 2021 from $109 billion in 2019.
What even is a fashion NFT?
Fashion NFTs, or non-fungible tokens, are digital assets that are unique and cannot be exchanged for other tokens on a one-to-one basis. In the world of fashion, these tokens can be used to represent ownership of a digital fashion design, a limited edition physical clothing item, or even a virtual outfit for use in a video game or virtual reality environment. Fashion NFTs are often bought and sold on blockchain marketplaces, and they offer a way for fashion designers and brands to create and sell unique, digital fashion items that can be easily verified and authenticated.
How do you create a fashion NFT?
To create a fashion NFT, you will need to have a digital design or image that you want to represent as a non-fungible token. You will also need to have access to a blockchain platform that supports the creation of NFTs.
Once you have these things, you can create your fashion NFT by following these steps:
- Choose a blockchain platform that supports the creation of NFTs, such as Ethereum or Solana.
- Create an account on the platform and acquire some of the platform’s native cryptocurrency, which you will need to use to pay for the creation of your NFT.
- Use the platform’s tools to create a new NFT, uploading your digital design or image and providing any additional information, such as a description and metadata.
- Set the price for your NFT and publish it to the platform’s marketplace, where it will be available for others to purchase.
Once your NFT is created and published, it will be stored on the blockchain and can be bought and sold by anyone with access to the platform. You can use the platform’s tools to track the ownership and transaction history of your NFT, ensuring that it remains unique and verifiable
