Felix Mago, Co-Founder of SPACE Metaverse adds: “Together, DFW and SPACE will showcase how easy it is for brands to create a shop or virtual experience inside the Metaverse and start selling physical, digital or phygital clothes inside virtual worlds.”
The event will feature a range of speakers from different parts of the world who will offer their unique perspectives on the future of fashion. This will provide an opportunity for attendees to learn about the latest developments in the industry and gain insights from experts.
In addition to the speakers, the event will also host a fashion show, where digital fashion designers will showcase their art. This is an excellent opportunity for up-and-coming designers to display their creativity and participate in this historic event. The contest for digital fashion designers is open to all, and it presents a unique opportunity for designers to showcase their talent on a global stage.
It’s exciting to see the fashion industry embrace technology and innovation, and the UAE Digital Fashion Week is a prime example of this. This event will pave the way for the fashion industry to explore new trends and to continue evolving to meet the demands of the modern consumer. The UAE Digital Fashion Week is expected to be a great success and a memorable event for the fashion industry.
