Thank you


hey guys, it’s cool to see Fashion in web3, I know how this industry works. What kind of shows have you staged and where in the world of Web2, and how are your collections promoted, who buys your clothes? Do you manufacture clothes? Do you cooperate with world fashion publications? Perhaps these are not such global fashion publications, maybe you cooperate with them? Need to see the MVP, unfortunately I don’t see the minimum set for you yet, except for managers who run social networks. I would love to see you walk through fashion events, not MetGala maybe, but where have you been, maybe Paris Fashion Week, Milan Fashion Week, London Fashion Week with menswear? I’m not asking about collaborating with Anna Wintour, Carine Roitfeld I’m asking if you’ve been featured in fashion magazines somewhere with your collections?

do you participate in fashion festivals, at least the Berlin Fashion Festival


Thank you for reaching out.

Some of our web2 community members are from Africa. And have staged some fashion week and fashion festival mostly in Nigeria. Like Aba Ankara Festival ABA FASHION FESTIVAL (@abaankarafestival) • Instagram photos and videos Aba Fashion week Aba Fashion Week (@aba_fashionweek) • Instagram photos and videos Porthartcort Fashion Week Port Harcourt Fashion Week™️ (@phfashionweek_) | Instagram Most of their collections are promoted through this fashion events and online stores. And their collections are bought by end users, stylist, and boutique owners.

No we are not corporated with World fashion publication, but while our community grows and see needs to do that we will definitely do that.

Definitely we look forward to see some of our web2 community members showcase on most of the world class events like those you mentioned or even collaborate/partner with them.

Our main goal is to promote, market and create showcasing platforms for the physical collections and NFTs of both our web2 and Web3 community members maximizing Near Ecosystem.


This will actually be a great way to bring fashion to life on the web3, Eco system,. Love it :heart:

Is all good @Paul But in my own point of view I don’t think we are getting the encouragement we in DigitalFashion Dao deserves… And is so discouraging seeing our Dao activities being stagnant for almost 1 year now due to lack of support from the moderators… But we will keep on developing our Dao until we moderators find our proposal worthy of approval
