D&G’s Collezione Genesi Collection Follows High Fashion NFTs by Clothia and Gucci
According to a report stemming from the fashion publication Vogue, the D&G NFT collection will premiere at the August 28-30 Alta Sartoria and Alta Gioielleria shows in Italy. The term “alta moda” means “high fashion” and DGGenesi or the “Collezione Genesi” collection was inspired by this trend.
Usually, Alta Moda is otherwise known as “Haute Couture,” which is basically when a fashion designer leverages hand-made fabrics with an attention to detail. In the 1880s and late 19th century, Alta Moda in Milan also meant ”fashion conscious.”
D&G followed the high fashion brand Gucci when the company recently sold its NFT “Gucci Aria” using the auction house Christie’s. The Gucci brand NFT sold for $25K and proceeds from the Gucci Aria NFT will be directed toward Unicef USA. Clothia, a luxury online retailer has also recently announced an NFT collection based on high fashion dresses.
