Dematerialising Fashion: Is Screen Wear the New Streetwear?
As the events of 2020 and 2021 forced the closure of physical spaces and compelled many of us to stay at home, the Metaverse emerged as a place we could still dress up for and go to. Fashionistas sought solace on virtual domains, and the Metaverse quickly found a new following in the world of fashion. And when real-life fashion events got cancelled during the lockdowns, virtual influencers and Metaverse stakeholders opened online boutiques, staged virtual catwalk shows and invited avatars to digital hang-outs.
