Metaverse and NFTs platforms have redefined the meaning of virtual items, and massive changes are happening in digital fashion. Here are the top virtual fashion marketplaces that designers should check out in 2022.
DressX is a digital fashion marketplace opened in 2020. With 40+ brands already launched, the platform allows users to browse through and buy a piece of virtual clothing. Users can also "wear" virtual clothing by uploading pictures or videos and applying the virtual clothes they purchased. They also launched the NFT marketplace recently, which will expand the possibilities of their virtual clothes.
XR Couture is another digital fashion marketplace that shares a similar concept as DressX. The platform was started in 2020, and it features full dresses priced over $100 to accessories like sunglasses below $10. Users can upload a photo of themselves to try out and wear the virtual clothings purchased on the platform.
The Dematerialised is a digital fashion NFT marketplace based in Europe that allows users to access, trade, and use Web3 fashion. The platform lies on the LUKSO blockchain, and it is looking to sync with metaverse platforms in the future.
ARTISTANT is an NFT-based marketplace for wearable collectables and digital fashion art. It operates on Ethereum blockchain and each piece of wearable art is available as NFT with a unique token, confirming the owner's exclusive rights for these garments. It is also a decentralized marketplace, where trading happens with smart contracts.
UNXD focuses on providing a curated platform for luxury brands in the digital world. They feature NFT drops from brands like Dolce&Gabbana and Jacob & Co.. While they do not have a marketplace opened yet, they are looking to expand into NFT marketplaces for high-end digital luxury in the future.
