Decentraland, a decentralized virtual social network based on the Ethereum blockchain, hosted the first-ever digital fashion week from March 23 to 27.

Previously, Jonathan Simkhai showed his collection in Second Life just before New York Fashion Week. After the concert, skins of evening ensembles were available for purchase at NFT to style up users' avatars in Second Life.

Decentraland also hosted the world's first five-day full-fledged fashion week. On the first day, Selfridges opened a store where NFT of the genuine exposition in London — the future of Victor Vasarely's work and the impact he had on his contemporary Paco Rabbane named UNIVERSE — was on display. NFT outfits and Fondation Vasarely artworks are available for purchase.
