My name is Omotola David Grace. I’m a fashion designer,stylist,crypto trader and an educationist.
I interact with a lot of youths and other fashion designers in my area and I’m eager to help ease them into the NEAR ecosystem.
Fashion is a form of self-expression and autonomy at a particular period and place and in a specific context, of clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyle, and body posture - Wikipedia.
The fashion industry is huge and influential with global sales and proceeds running into billions (sometimes, trillions) of dollars yearly.
Considering the the great influence fashion have globally, and its proven capacity to generate massive following, it is no doubt a step in the right direction to create an avenue for NEAR and indeed Web 3 as a whole, to take advantage of the huge market and also consolidate several fashion and style-related use cases.
It makes me happy to introduce the Fashion and Style DAO.
Goals And Objectives
Create valuable fashion use cases for Near
Onboarding through fashion and style-related events
Creating massive traffic and footfall to NFT Stores on Near by …:
@Dabbie3229 got your msg, but our dao had been registered and there is a lot of room for collaboration.
You can check our dao out, @ Fashion and style on astro and its not just one persons thing you can as well join the council members, Since you have the same initiative in mind.
hi huys! great to see @Davidgrace_2 you’re moving towards your intense
but, you forget to mention our project that you’re informed about, it is already going - https://gov.near.org/t/proposal-near-fashion-onboard-the-project/17701
the collection is almost sewn, then photoset is scheduled and after it will be minted. so next month we will look for 3d-designers through bounty on forum with purpose of creation same collection but as 3D-NFTs that can be wearables for Metaverse (NEARhub at first).
as far as merch is concerned, since March goadao with designer/NFT-artist @Manumission have started to create first T-shirts
in May we’ve prepared merch for NFT-Metaverse Summit for approx. 400usd . every hidden sticker was found and gifted there, we’ve returned from Bangalore back to Goa with nothing printed at all - people on the Summit were collecting our stickers for creating memory about the event and NEAR, and all.
so in June its evidently for us that we have to create and produce more cool merch, just only - with better understanding of distributing, that can be doing through NFTs also, not on physical events only. we will continue all this activity in any ways because it’s fun it makes people smiling, and because now we have a certain plan about its realization (that will appear on the forum in some time later)
Now, meeting this conversation, i feel necessary to remind how it was started from our point of view, when in March we wrote:
and further you can see the rest plan.
we’re learning from this project many valuable details, that would be able to evaluate in future.
for the NEAR Fashion it has to be another timelines comparing to usual NFT-projects for example, because there are a lot of steps depends of physical reality, like ordering special materials for dresses…
