Non Fungible tokens have expanded their uses among multiple industries, be it gaming, music, digital arts, and much more. The fashion industry is also among them.

Many fashion brands have launched their collections on different marketplaces. 

Also, it is a great opportunity for anyone to make extreme profits by building a marketplace and taking a commission on each sale.

In detail, let’s understand these NFTs and know the best way to create a platform that allows users to create and trade their virtual clothing and accessories.

What are wearable NFTs?

Wearable NFTs are virtual clothing or digital accessories like shorts, dresses, jeans, glasses, bags, etc that users can use on their virtual avatars in different metaverse platforms and games.

All these designs are made with the help of blockchain technology and smart contracts to help creators bring uniqueness, authenticity, and secure ownership to their every garment. Check the best platforms to create your smart contracts.

The concept of the virtual fashion industry has existed for decades. For example, you may have seen virtual cloth accessories in popular games like The Sims or the Second Life. 

Moreover, popular luxury brands have entered this virtual industry and are expected to take this market worth around $56B by 2030. Last year, Louis Vuitton launched their metaverse game, where players can collect virtual assets.

Moreover, many other fashion brands, including Adidas, GAP, Nike, and Crocs, have joined the bandwagon to offer virtual wardrobes to customers. 

What makes wearable NFTs so special?

Everyone wants to create their unique identity in virtual worlds by wearing incredible virtual fashion collections. These collections help users bring uniqueness to their virtual profiles.

However, many reasons make these virtual assets so appealing that we have discussed below. 

1. Endless creativity

In this virtual fashion industry, fashion has gone beyond fabric. Now the brands are experimenting with virtual fashion accessories with unrealistic materials such as gold, water, smoke, and much more.

There are many endless possible ways by which brands can experiment with their virtual clothing and wearable accessories, which is impossible to experiment with in the real world.

2. Body and gender inclusivity

There is no limitation to the body shape and size in virtual industries. Moreover, users can try virtual accessories of their opposite gender by customizing their virtual avatars in the digital world.

3. Accessibility

Compared to real-life fashion accessories, the virtual fashion industry offers affordability where anyone can try different and unique clothing on their virtual avatars. 

Moreover, there are no limitations or boundaries where anyone can try different fashion accessories that are available all around the world. That’s not possible in the case of the real-life fashion industry.

4. Availability

There is no such thing as the unavailability of fabric in the virtual world as that happens in the real world. Brands can produce unlimited copies of fashion accessories and clothing with this virtual fashion industry.

5. New business models

Businesses can explore different monetization models to maximize profits by selling their garments in the virtual world. Moreover, the brands can generate a high income as royalties on each sale of their digital assets.

6. Waste reduction

There is no involvement of carbon emissions in the production of virtual fashion accessories (giving better results to fashion brands for contributing to saving the environment).

Moreover, with the help of the virtual fashion industry, there is no need for fashion brands to create their actual fashionable clothes that involve the consumption of a lot of natural materials and fabrics. 

Not needing actual fabric material saves the environment from the over-consumption of natural sources by the fashion industry.
